motions: 



I move that the rules of the conference be those rules printed on 

pages 4 - 8 of the 1983 Journal 

I move that the registration cards signed at the registration tables 

by the lay and clerical members of the Conference be designated and 

declared the official roll of the Conference. 

I move that the main floor and the stage of Reeves Auditorium be the 

Bar of the Conference 

I move that the program as contained in the Conference Program and 

Book of Recommendations 1983 ( as amended by the Bishop) be designated 

and declared the Official Program of the Conference. 

I move that the material printed and published in INFORM be declared 

"presented to the Conference" when distributed to the members, to 

satisfy the 2 4 -hour rule. 

I move that those persons appearing on the program of the Conference 

be granted the priviledge of the floor. Some of those on the program 

are not members of the conference and this motion will enable, them to 

speak without specific motion for each individual. 

I move that the 1984 Annual Conference Committees printed on pages 2 & 

3 of Section I of the Conference Program, Recommendations, and Reports 

be elected. 

Bethea's motion was before the house. 

Motion ; Robert Pullman made the following motion: "I move that the 
Rules of Order and Procedure for the North Carolina Conference be amended 
as follows: 

1. Under Section IV: Conference Structure, a section 8 be added. 

2. Section 8 shall read: 

No person may serve on more than one Board of Trustees of an 
institution to which Trustees are elected by the Conference. 

3. This rule will become effective at the 1985 session of the North 
Carolina Annual Conference." 

Pullman spoke to his motion, stating that it had precedence in the 
fact that Conference persons were allowed to serve on only one board or 
agency and he felt this should be extended to the boards of trustees of all 
agencies. He mentioned that the motion would not be effective until 1985 
so that it would not disturb the members of the various boards in the 
current year. 

Point of Orde r; Jack Crum raised the question of how many persons 
would be affected by this rule. Pullman answered that it would be two or 
three. 



Point of Clarification ; Langill Watson rose to a point of 
clarification. He wanted to know if this applied to people serving on 
boards of trustees outside the Conference or on boards that the Conference 
did not elect. Pullman responded that it meant only those trustees that 
were actually elected by this Conference. G. Robert McKenzie asked that 
the motion be defeated. 

Motion to Refer ; Ernest R. Porter moved that the motion be referred 
to the ConfeTence Committee on Rules. The vote was taken and it was 
referred. 

Point of Order ; Charles Myers rose to a point of order stating that 

the probleitT" oT restricting people to one agency had already been 

invalidated by the fact that dozens of people had served on as many as four 
agencies during the last quadrennium. 

Reginald Ponder spoke to what Myers had stated by suggesting that 
these people were largely serving in an ex-officio capacity. Bishop Cannon 
expressed thanks for the clarification. 

Bethea's motion on the rules was adopted. 

Election of a Conference Secretary ; Jack Hunter nominated L.T. 
Wilson. Wilson was unopposed and was elected unanimously. Jax:k Hunter

Roy Swaringen, Lay Leader of the Sanford District. It was so ordered.

report see Section V of the Journal.) Traynham referred to pages 23 and 24 } 
of THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS, 1984, emphas iz ing ij 
that the tables were preliminary and subject to final audit. The increase 
in church membership was noted with joy. 

Council on Finance and Administration ; Bishop Cannon presented | 
Randolph Few to bring the report. Section I on page 2-III of THE |i 
CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1984, was presented for i 
information. Section II was presented for adoption. 

Mot ion ; James Coile moved the following amendment to the report of the ■ 
United Methodist Church Administration: 

"I move to amend the report of the Council on Finance and i 
Administration by inserting a Number 12 in II General Policies. ' 

12. For the calendar year 1985, the salary of a district 
superintendent shall be $35,040 (or 240% of the Equitable Salary's Schedule 
for Ministers under full time appointment.) In each year the Council on 
Finance and Administration shall recommend as the salary for a district 
superintendent a percentage of the schedule of minimum salaries for 
ministers under full time appointment as follows: 
1986 - 232% 



1987 - 


- 224% 


1988 - 


- 216% 


1989 - 


- 208% 


1990 - 


- 200% 



For each year after 1990, the salary for a district superintendent shall be 
at 200% of the amount set as minimum salary for ministers under full time 
appointment. During no year shall a district superintendent be paid less 
than in the previous year." 

The motion was seconded. Coile spoke to it stating that the motion he 
proposed would bring the salary of the district superintendents back into 
the legislative process. Coile spoke cogently to the issue of tying 
district superintendents' salaries toward a 200% maximum of the equitable 
minimum salary. He spoke of how the Conference was perceived as being 
divided into two camps — the affluent and the poor — and how we needed to 
address and stop this issue. 

Motion ; Albert F. Fisher moved "that the Coile Amendment lie on the 
table until Thursday for proper debate after reflection." The motion was 
lost. 

E.R. Porter requested that the extensive study done by the Council on 
Finance and Administration on district superintendents' salaries be heard 
before we further debate the question. Maness Mitchell spoke generally in 
favor of the Coile Amendment. Langill Watson spoke against the motion. 

Mot ion ; Reginald Ponder moved "that the amendment be referred to the 
Council on Finance and Administration for study and that they make a report 
to the 1985 session of the North Carolina Annual Conference." It was 
seconded. 

Question ; Clarence Warren asked a question regarding the motion to 
refer and he questioned whether, since this had been made a part of the 
CF&A report, which would not be finally considered until Thursday, this 
should be held off until Thursday. The Bishop ruled that it could be voted 
on immediately. 

The Bishop called for the vote on the motion for reference and 
declared that the motion was adopted. A count vote was called for but was 

160 



not sustained by the Conference. 

All of the Council on Finance and Administration report was passed 
rfith the exception of that part that by Conference ruling must be held off 
unt 11 Thursday. 

Randolph Few called upon Charles McAdams to stand and be honored with

Continuation of the Report of the Board of Pensions ; Norwood Jones 
continued the report begun before the noonday meal. He called attention to 
III, pages 7-12, in THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 
1984. He moved the adoption of Sections A through D of the report. Maness 
Mitchell rose to ask why Charles Umstead was not being paid in accordance 
with the 1982 formula. The answer was that the General Board of Pensions 
ruled that Charles Umstead was not eligible in any way for the medical 
disability benefits of the Annual Conference. There proceeded an 
interchange between Norwood Jones and Maness Mitchell. Mitchell requested 
the Conference to consider what the action should really be regarding 
remuneration to Brother Umstead. Jones indicated that this was being 
looked into immediately and he had so stated at the beginning of the 
report. 

Section A was adopted. Reports B,C and D were moved. 




Jones gave information concerning the difference between the pension 
programs. Michael Hale raised a question. Bill Sherman spoke to the issue 
at hand and the entire peerage process. John Cline moved that the motion 
before us be referred to the Board of Pensions for a more detailed study. 
It was seconded and passed. The motion was referred.

exception of the Umstead matter, was adopted by the Conference. (For 
complete and corrected text, see Section V of the Journal.)

Dr. Porter spoke of the General Conference's concern that there be two 
new churches started in each district. He also spoke of the need we see in 
our own conference: the need we have to study the alignment of charges; 
where we need to start new churches; where churches need to be relocated; 
and he pointed out our need for some way to do this. He pointed out the 
church growth plan that is included in the Book of Recommendations, and 
after his explaining the program, it was adopted by the Conference. 

In Section II, page 11, Dr. Porter presented the recommendations from 
the Council on Ministries to change the Rules of Order of the Conference. 
The rules were presented to the Conference and will lay on the table 
overnight as the Rules of the Conference require. One of the motions 
called for the election of the officers for the boards and agencies of the 
Conference for the new quadrennium to be by written secret ballot with 
nominations being made from the floor if the various boards and agencies so 
desire. The other rule change from the Council on Ministries dealt with 
the manner in which the Conference Lay Leader would be elected. 

Robert O'Keef and Herman Winberry were called to give a report on the 
Church School Evangelism Task Force. Robert O'Keef said the report was 
found on page 8, Section II. Rev. O'Keef spoke of the large loss in 
membership in the church school. He spoke of the blame resting upon the 
shoulders of us all, and encouraged us to have again the zeal to bring 
persons into a personal relationship of the saving grace of God. He spoke 
of looking at the dawn of a new day and our need to look to Christ for our 
needs as we launch a new day in the growth and development of church 
schools. Rev. O'Keef pointed out that this report would call for the 
establishment of one new church school in each district of the conference. 
He moved the adoption of the report and it was adopted. 

Dr. Belton Joyner brought the report of the Board of Education of the 
Council on Ministries. Rev. Joyner spoke of a report that was made on 
church school education in 1934 and concluded that the responsibility of 
the church and the church school was the same as it was in 1934, that we 
ought to be about the extension of God's love. The broad concerns report 
of the Board of Education is on page 4, Section II of the Book of 
Recommendations. They were adopted. 

The Rev. Rufus Stark, who is the head of the Methodist Home for 
Children spoke of the need for us to remember that religious education. 
Christian education, is the responsibility of the church school. He 
pointed out that we need to emphasize the work of the Church School within 
our church. The Reverend Allen Wentz who has served on the Conference 
Council on Ministries Staff addressed the conference. He spoke concerning 
the work of the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church at 
the camps that the conference owns. Rev. Wentz. also spoke of some of the

lin the Conference of 1,220 members in the previous year. He spoke of the 
continuing need for our conference to be concerned about and involved in an 
evangelistic outreach within our conference. He stated that there were at 
least one and one-half million people within the bounds of our conference 
who did not know Jesus Christ and reminded the conference of the need for 
the church to reach out to bring these persons to Jesus Christ. Sid 
Huggins expressed appreciation for the leadership of Bishop Cannon in the 
evangelistic concerns of the church.

Tommy Tyson, John Hobbs, Johnny Williams, and Bobby Tyson. He moved their 
election. They were elected. 

He called attention to the Concerns of Evangelism found on page 4 of

The Bishop emphasized the importance of the Wesley Works which were to 
is mind a most important milestone in publishing effort. 




Report of the Board of Higher Education and Campus M inistries ; B ishop 
Cannon asked Samuel D. McMillan to come forward and present the report. 
McMillan expressed his pleasure in serving on the board for the past eight 
years and announced as an outstanding factor to make people realize the 
progress of higher education that all of the colleges and universities were 
solvent. It was observed that now the colleges could go out and raise 
further monies. McMillan reviewed the various achievements of the past 
years. (For complete text of the report see Journal, Section V.) McMillan 
directed the attention of the Conference to THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, 
RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1984, Section II, page 5 - the broad concerns 
of the Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry. He moved their 
adoption and they were adopted. 

McMillan then directed attention to page 9 of Section II - the policy 
statements. He moved their adoption and they were adopted. On page 12 of 
Section II he called attention to the trustee nominations. Corrections 
were made in the list of trustees, including some whose names were 
accidentally omitted from the printed copy. These will appear in the 
Journal, Sections II and V. McMillan moved the adoption of the trustees 
for the colleges. The trustees were duly elected by the Conference. 
McMillan then directed attention to Section IV, pages 13-17, as the overall 
report presented for information. This, too, will appear in Section V of 
the Journal. 

Motion: McMillan then made a motion concerning the Byrd motion of the 
1983 Conference, asking that it be amended. The text is on page 16 of 
Section IV, and reads: "...we move to amend the Byrd motion from 'receive 
and share with the Annual Conference each year the position and enforcement 
policy regarding the use and possession of alcoholic beverages on the 
campus of each of our conference colleges' to 'receive annual reports from 
each of our colleges and report any significant change in policy to the 
Annual Conference.'" The motion was adopted by the Conference unanimously. 

McMillan submitted a resolution regarding the increase in student 
grants for North Carolina students attending private college and 
universities in North Carolina - to be increased $100 per year. 

Question ; Quinton Covington made a statement that he felt the 
Conference had rejected the idea of grants to private schools. 

166 



Porter answered by stating that legislative support was different from 
;he church support. Bishop Cannon wished to make further statements and he 
)ointed out that Covington's point was directed to parochial and private 
secondary schools for which a request had been made before Congress to 
allow people to deduct tuition and fees from income taxes. In principle 
;he Church had rejected that. The Bishop further stated that the tuition 
grant for higher education was just that - a tuition grant - and was 
available to anybody who was a citizen of North Carolina. 

James Coile read the resolution that was adopted last year which was a 
paper from the Board of Church and Society. He indicated it was a matter 
that dealt with the first ammendment to the Constitution of the United 
States and it dealt with the matter of separation of church and state. 
Coile stated that he didn't see the inconsistency because one dealt with 
the tax structure of the United States of America and the McMillan 
resolution dealt simply with the saving of monies for the state of North 
Carolina. 

Amendment ; Vernon Tyson requested that the resolution be amended by 
deleting the words that read: "representing over 213,900 Methodists in 56 
countries." McMillan accepted the deletion. 

The resolution reads as follows: 

Whereas private institutions of higher education have made and 
continue to make a positive contribution to the education of North 
Carolina's youth; 

Whereas the difference in tuition cost at public and private 
institutions of higher education, put private colleges and universities at 
a disadvantage in the recruitment of students; 

Whereas the grant for North Carolina students attending private 

colleges and universities in North Carolina is less than the grant provided 

for many out of state students to attend the consolidated University of 
North Carolina; 

Whereas the N.C. Legislature has in recent years sought to increase 
annually the grant for North Carolina students attending private colleges 
and universities; 

And whereas Rep. Liston B. Ramsey, Speaker of the N.C. House was 
quoted in the News and Observer (6-3-84) as saying that "spending $1,050 in 
state money per student at private institutions would save the state about 
$3000 per student - the difference between the grant and the per-student 
cost to the state of running the UNC System."; 

Therefore be it resolved, 

that the North Carolina Annual Conference of the United Methodist 
Church, 

encourages the North Carolina Legislature, which opens this week, 

to support the proposal 

that the total level of the per student grant for North Carolina 
students attending private colleges and universities in North Carolina, 

be increased from $950.00 to $1,050.00. 

Further, be it resolved 

that copies of this resolution be mailed to Lt. Govenor Jimmy Green, 
House Speaker Liston B. Ramsey, and all members of the North Carolina 
General Assembly. 

The resolution was moved, seconded and adopted by the Conference.

Hendricks and Dr. Petteway to come forward and give their reports.

V.) 

Point of Personal Privilege ; Robert McKenzie rose to a point of 
personal privilege regarding the fact that it had been only nine years 
since the Conference met in special session on what to do about our 
colleges. He expressed his own personal amazement at the progress during 
those years and at how wonderful the response of North Carolina Wesleyan 
had been. |

Methodists of the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences.

the Journal.) A picture of the recipients was taken and congratulations 
were extended all around. The distribution of the Calvin Little estate 
a milestone in history in the North Carolina Conference of The Unitec 
Methodist Church. It is a tribute to the pastorate of Dr. Winstead whc 
served the Mount Gilead Charge and was a true pastor to the late Calvin 
Little. 

Blackburn Scholarship Fund : Bishop Cannon presented Sam McMillan wh( 
in turn recognized Sam Brown to award the Blackburn Scholarship. This

Report of the Board of Health and Welfare M inistries : Bishop Cannon 
presentea w aTTa ce~K i r by to lead in EFe presentation of the report. Kirby 
presented Clifton Everett of the Conference Board of Trustees to present 
the report answering the Braswell motion brought before the Conference for 
study in 1983. Everett gave something of the history of the answer to the 
small amount of Children's Home property which was to be reserved for 
Conference use, if the Conference wished to pay the "going rate" for it. 
After some talking back and forth, the Conference Council on Ministries 
reaffirmed the ruling of 1979 and finally proposed that the remainder of 
the land be sold that the proceeds might be used for child care development 
immediately. At this point there was not money available from the 
Conference funds to purchase the property. The resolution was presented by 
the Conference Trustees after careful study and a full text will be seen in 
Section V of the Journal. 

Amendment ; Thomas A. Collins offered the following amendment to the 
resolution by the Conference Council on Ministries; "I move that the North 
Carolina Annual Conference strongly recommend that, if the Board of 
Trustees of The Methodist Home (formerly for Children) sells the remaining 
9.42 acres known as Lots 22 through 32, which includes Monk Memorial 
Chapel, the Vann Building and the Cafeteria, first priority in the sale 
shall be given to one of the proposals now before their sales agent, or to 
be presented within ninety days, offering to purchase the site at current 
market price, said proposals which support health and welfare purposes to 
which the land has long been dedicated, namely, for the establishment of 
retirement homes and/or a nursing retirement center which will still assure 
the retention of Monk Chapel as a continuing presence on the site." It was 
seconded and Collins spoke to his motion. 

Ray Talton, not a lay member of the Conference this year, was given 
permission to speak and he reaffirmed what Collins had said. Talton 
observed that the value of the property had increased so that, even 
discounting interest that could have been earned, it has been enhanced in 
one year to a quarter of a million dollars net. Talton indicated that a 
developer who would build a retirement and nursing center had been 
found, and this could be done on either a lease or purchase basis, and the 
Children's Home could receive this money immediately. Talton elaborated on 
possibilities. 

169 



Rufus stark responded to Talton and the Collins motion. Stark stated 
that the Children's Home had examined both offers and their realtors were 
studying them. He asked that Dr. Nash Winstead, Chairman of the Children's 
Home Board of Trustees, be given the opportunity to speak. It was granted. 
He stated that the Children's Home Trustees had not yet seen the proposals 
and studied them, and rather than having the Conference instruct the 
Children's Home to take a specific action, he requested that the Conference 
give the Children's Home trustees the opportunity of self-determination in 
the sale of the property. 

For the purpose of debate Bishop Cannon requested that the Secretary 
pro tem Joseph Bethea read the motion, carefully and slowly, so that 

the entire conference might gain its import. Bishop Cannon stated that the 
Talton speech was a speech in favor of the amendment and the Stark 
statement was a speech against the amendment. Stark rose to state that it 
was not, but that it was a job for the trustees and all of them should be 
voted out of office if they could not be trusted to follow the mandate of 
the Conference. 

Charles M. Smith spoke in favor of giving first priority to the 
motion. He pointed out that, if it turned out not to be beneficial, then 
the trustees could retain their own option. Smith said he did feel that a 
way out that would serve both purposes had been found and he could not see 
why it should not be followed. 

Sam McMillan rose to request a re-reading of a portion of the motion. 
It was done. Brian Gentle asked whether this would be under the direction 
of the Conference or private enterprise. Tom Collins answered that it 
would be definitely a private enterprise, even though it could be a 
non-private entity if the Conference and retirement homes or other entities 
of the Conference saw fit. 

Amendment ! Jack Crum proposed that the Collins motion be amended by 
the addition of the words "without direction" after the words "strongly 
recommend." This would give the trustees the right to determine how it 
would dispose of the property. This addition was accepted by Collins. 

Tibbie Roberts spoke against the clause in the motion talking about 
into selling the Children's Home to one specific proposal for purchase. 

Reginald Ponder spoke to the motion. He read the passage of Scripture 
concerning Ahab and Nabob and the vineyard from I Kings. Ponder spoke 

emotionally in favor of the Collins motion. 

Everett spoke to the need of having the entire document clarified so 
that the amendment might be better understood by the Conference and so that 
the parties involved might be known to the Conference. He thought it 

should be clearly stated and distributed among the Conference members 
before a vote is taken. Collins responded saying that he thought that the 
motion was crystal clear and that is was only a high priority 
recommendation to the Children's Home Board of Trustees with certain 
options already available for their study. 

Question ; The previous question was called but was not seconded. 
Bishop Cannon asked Mr. Everett for advice as to whether it was fully 
legal. Bishop Cannon restated the motion and Everett stated that it was 
legally sound. 

Ernest Porter spoke to clarify the history of the entire issue for the 
sake of those delegates who had not been present at previous conferences. 

The Bishop placed the motion as he saw fit and it was debated by Sam 
McMillan, who stated it was not the motion before us. Robert McKenzie rose 
to suggest that the Bishop's motion be a substitute and be before us. The 
Bishop suggested that McKenzie prepare a motion and then Cliff Shoaf was 
called upon to write the appropriate motion. 

Motion ; "The North Carolina Conference recommends that the trustees 
of the Methodist Home for Children consider accepting any reasonable 
proposal for the disposal of the property in lots 22-32 that would achieve 
the purposes of Conference ministries in the area of Health and Welfare." 

Cliff Shoaf's motion was placed as substitute. Collins spoke in favor 
of the Collins amendment instead of the Shoaf substitute. 

170 



Langill Watson called the previous question on everything before us. 
'he call for the previous question carried by a two-thirds vote. 

The vote was taken on the Shoaf substitute, and it was defeated. The 
lollins amendment was adopted. 

Harold Leatherman asked that the Conference stand and sing "The 
)oxology" after having heard so many discussions on this matter. 

The Everett resolution as amended by the Collins amendment was 
adopted. 

Bishop Cannon ordered that the Conference stand and sing "The 
Doxology" The Conference stood and did so with great praise. 

Historical Vignette : Henry Evans, a free-black shoemaker in 
Fayettevi lie, responsible for the founding of Methodism in the city, 
relived a moment in history. Evans was represented by Ross Townes. 

Cont inuat ion of the Report of the Methodist Home for Children ; Stark 
was granted five mTnutes by the Bishop to present the staff of the Home. 
He called them one by one and had them stand and be recognized by the 
Conference. They were accorded a round of applause. 

Call for the Order of the Day ; Bishop Cannon called for the order of 
the day to accommodate the needs of the Board of the Laity. 

Board of the Laity ; Bishop Cannon presented Catharine Vick to present 
the Lay Per¥on""oT the Year Award. Mrs. Vick distributed the list of the 
lay persons of the year from the districts and a sheet of guidelines to be 
followed in the future for naming lay persons of the year. She urged using 
of the guidelines in selecting these persons. On page 18 of Section IV in 
THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1984, the names of the 
lay person of the year for each year since 1964 are listed. A plaque all 
those names engraved thereon was presented to Ernest Porter with the 
request that the lay person of the year be added each .year from now on. 

Mrs. Vick called on the various lay persons of the year from each 
district to stand and be recognized and the understanding was that no one 
knew who would actually be the lay person of the year until all the 
district lay persons were recognized. 

Conference Lay Persons of the Year Named; Dr. Robert Long and his 
wife, Leiotte LoiTg7 ot Long ffemoTTal Church in Roxboro, Durham District, 
were named Lay Persons of the Year for the North Carolina Conference for

for His providential protection and on which we pause to examine our lives

"While the Church does not condone, and certainly does not encourage, 
/ar; we must admit that the evil that sought to eliminate from the face of 
:he earth one segment of the "People of God," could not and should not have 
jtood. For those who oppose evil, for those who rejoice in freedom, for 
:hose who love justice and mercy, this day is symbolic of our commitment to 
justice and peace for the whole human family. Today we pay tribute to 
:hose who gave their last full measure of devotion on D-Day, that peace and 
justice could again reign on the earth.

report. Gulledge spoke of a good year financially with an increase in 
assets to the shareholders of the foundation. The largest shareholder of 
the foundation is the Board of Pensions along with the Methodist Ministers 
Retirement Fund. Gu edge further spoke of the work done by the Office of 
Planned Giving which represents a new thrust, indeed a new emphasis for the 
Conference in the development of monies for charitable purposes within the 
Conference and a vehicle for smaller units to be remembered by bequests, 
specifically, and have their monies managed. A copy of the audit is on 
file with the Conference Treasurer's office and may be viewed by any member 
of the Conference upon request. (For a complete copy of the Gulledge 
report see Sections V and VI of the Journal.) 

Report of Office of Planned G iving : Bishop Cannon recognized Dr. John 
K. Bergland to present the report of his office. Bergland spoke to the 
need to seek funds from wills to give permanent endowments to the church. 
He felt this was a blessing that could be presented to many people because 
so many do not have wills or have wills that are not perfected according to 
the laws of the state. Bergland further spoke to the time-to-time 
publication of his office entitled "Legacies," a copy of which was given to 
each member of the Conference. The motto which his office is attempting to 
develop is "The Stewardship of Accumulated Possessions." He spoke of some 

177 



of the early and more recent legacies that have been given to the church 
and what they have meant to the church. (For complete text of the report 
see Journal, Section V.)

Mot ion : J.C. Parker made a motion regarding Item 4 under Report II of 
the Insurance Committee Report referring to the P re-Admission Certification 
feature.

reassurance that it would be explained to all the ministers. The Parker 
motion was defeated. 

The Jones report was accepted. (For complete text of the Insurance 
Committee Report see Journal, Section V.) 

Motion: William Patterson moved "that the N.C. Conference Insurance 
Committee make a study of the availability of group medical insurance 
coverage for our non-ordained local church staff personnel. The 
non-ordained personnel would include secretaries, custodial help and other 
non-ordained employees who serve in an employed capacity in the local 
church. The above listed employees, for eligibility in the program, are 
required to work a minimum of 30 hours per week. 

The study should include the member costs, deductibles and benefits. 
The result of the study and the recommendations of the Conference Insurance 
Committee are to be circulated by letter to all churches in this 
Conference. 

The recommendation of the Conference Insurance Committee is to be 
placed on the agenda for action during the 1985 Annual Conference provided 
the local churches in the Conference who require this service respond to 
the Conference Insurance Committee indicating acceptance of the offered 
plan in time to meet the 1985 Annual Conference Program agenda deadline." 

Maness Mitchell moved an amendment that this motion include the full 
time staff persons serving church agencies. This amendment was ruled out 
of order. 

The Patterson proposal for study was adopted and was an addendum to 
the report of the Insurance Committee. 

Report of the Commission on Equitable Salaries : Bishop Cannon 
presented Grier Garrick to present the report. Garrick referred the 
Conference to pages 4 and 5 of Section III of THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, 
RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1984. He explained the report and placed it 
before the Conference. and Society and the Conference voted to sustain the 
acceptance. 

Mot ion : Stephen C. Compton moved "that the first sentence of the 
fifth paragraph of the report of the Commission on Equitable Salaries be 
amended to read: 

'In the area of travel reimbursement the Commission recommends that 
every charge provide at least $1,800 as a travel allowance (omitting the 
reference to ministers income tax return).' And that the first sentence of 
section 2 (Travel Allowance) under the heading RECOMMENDED SCHEDULE OF 
MINIMUM SALARIES FOR 1984 be amended to read: 

'Although travel is reimbursed by the charge as an item of ministerial 
expense, it is expected that the charge would provide at least $1,800 for 
travel expense.'" 

The motion carried. 

Mot ion ; Stephen C. Compton made a second motion: "I move that the 
report of the Commission on Equitable Salaries be amended to recommend a 
minimum salary of $9,900 for Student Pastors." 

178 



He was apprised of the resolution that was passed last year which 
indicated that there had to be a two-thirds percent differential, 

Robert Reed spoke to the report. 

Point of Clarification ; Kermit Braswell was called upon to clarify 
his mot ion ol last year. Bishop Cannon characterized Braswell's 
explanation of his motion as imponderable. Ernest Porter stated that the 
goal was that the student pastor would receive 65 percent of a full time 
pastor's salary. There followed much good-hearted interchange between 
members of the Conference regarding the issue. 

The motion carried. 

Mot ion : George C. Smith moved "that the minimum for full time pastors 
be raised to $15,000 rather than the $14,600 recommended." 

Subst itute ; Rufus H. Stark proposed as a substitute "that the 
Equitable Salaries Commission pay the portion of Social Security for 
pastors on minimum salary at the same rate paid by the employer for other 
church employees." It was moved seconded and lost. 

Ruth Cade spoke to the needs of the small church which is already 
burdened beyond its means to take care of Conference obligations and the 
pastor's full package of benefits. 

The Smith motion to raise the minimum salary for full time pastors 
failed. 

The report of the Commission on Equitable Salaries was adopted as a 
whole by the Conference. 

Joseph B. requested that Bill Sherman make a statement regarding the 
marvelous work of Grier Garrick during the past quadrennium, particularly 
since he had now served out his alloted tenure. Sherman spoke words of 
gratitude and fondness for Grier Garrick's integrity, love and commitment 
to the Church and to its ministry in his work over the years. He alluded 
to what a difficult job it was to set minimum salaries in a position that 
was both equitable to the minister and equitable to the church which was 
also struggling. Garrick was given a standing ovation by the Conference as 
a token of its love and appreciation for his work. 

Motion : Ruth Cade moved "that the new Commission on Equitable 
Salaries for 1984-1988 study ways to meet the increasing financial burden 
of the churches with small membership — with possible alternatives to 
annually increasing minimum salary, such as parish ministry, etc." It was 
seconded and adopted. 

Report of Committee on D istr ict Conference Records ; James Coile gave 
the report, stating that EFe records have been examined and found to be 
satisfactory with certain standards needing to be increased such as keeping 
records in permanent binders. , etc. (For complete text of the report see 
Journal, Section V.)

given by RalpE Fleming. He directed the attention of the Conference to 
pages 6 and 7 of Section IV of THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND 
REPORTS 1984. Fleming distributed a Pastoral Epistle from Bishop James 
Ault clarifying the relationship of the United Methodist Church, the World 
Council of Churches and the National Council of Churches of Christ in the 
USA, He commended the reading of it and the distribution of it to all 
congregations. Fleming referred to the broad concerns on page 4 and the 
activity items on page 8 of Section II. They were moved and accepted by 
the Conference. (The report may be found in Section V of the Journal.) 

Report of the Board of Managers of the North Carolina Pastors School ; 
Charles Michael Smith brought the report concerning the outstanding success 
that the Pastors School had enjoyed in recent years. He alluded to the 
addition of seminars for continuing education credit and he considered 
this, as he hoped the Conference would, a positive step forward. He 
encouraged people to register early for the Pastors School (For complete 
text of the report see Journal, Section V.) 

Report of the Methodist Ministers Savings and Credit Union : The 
IT9 



report was brought by C. Maness Mitchell after the Conference was 
admonished that this was not a creature of the Conference but a separate 
entity. He emphasized that the report was presented for information only. 
The bishop stated that this did not take away from the good work of Maness 
Mitchell and the pride the Conference could duly share in the work that he 
did. 

Mitchell gave some of the highlights of the last year and the imminent 
proposal to provide financing for homes for retired ministers. The 
remainder of the report may be found in the Journal, Section V. 

Report of the Ethnic Minority Local Church ; The report was brought by 
Jimmy Cummings. He expressed his gratitude and that of the committee for 
the way the Conference had responded to the EMLC program. He referred to 
the reports in THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1984, 
on page 10, Section IV, and noted that they would be published in the 
Conference Journal, Section V. He expressed the hope that every person 
present would carefully read the report. He urged the entire Conference to 
go on supporting the missional priority which had been extended for four 
more years by the General Conf erence--that of the Ethnic Minority Local 
Church. He expressed his appreciation not only to the Conference but 
specifically to the Bishop for aid in the work. Bishop Cannon responded by 
expressing appreciation for Jimmy Cummings and his devoted work in this 
servi ce.

Annual Conference Love Feast ; The Annual Conference Love Feast was 
called to order and given leadership by Conference Evangelists Tommy Tyson, 
John Hobbs, and Johnny Williams. Hymn 224, "Blessed Assurance," was sung 
by those assembled. Prayer was offered and the ushers were called forward 
to distribute the traditional elements of bread and water as a mark of 
Christian love and commitment. As the bread and water were uncovered 
prayer was given for the entire Conference and all of its members and the 
needs of others beyond. The elements were held until they had been 
distributed to everyone and then they were taken together. An hour had 
been set aside from 8:00-9:00 a.m., for testimony and sharing of love and 
Christian experience. This was done with alternating testimony, words of 
Scripture, hymns, poetry and all forms of Christian expression. 

Many of the brothers and sisters testified mightily to their own faith 
and trust in God and gave thanks for the church and the blessings of Jesus 
Christ that had come to them in the recent year and in earlier years of 
their lives. Some of the songs were sung spontaneously by those in the 
congregat ion. 

As the Conference Love Feast came to a close with a final testimony 
and expression of faith by Tommy Tyson everyone felt a sense of oneness and 
unity with one another and with Christ. Bobby Tyson closed with prayer. 
The affirmations and testimonies brought a sense of wonder to this hour 
apart that we had spent together. 

An organ interlude heralded the end of the Love Feast and the 
reconvening of the Conference for its last day of business. 

Conference Called to Order ; Bishop Cannon called the Conference to 
order artd called tor the singing of Hymn 166, "Lord Jesus, I Love Thee." 
The Bishop called on Helen Crotwell to lead in prayer. The Bishop spoke of 
the beautiful Love Feast which we had already had this morning and of how 
we had the Wesley Covenant Service to look forward to. He felt that this 
would be a spiritually meaningful day. 

Report of Council on Finance and Administration : Bishop Cannon called 

on Randolph Few to return to the report for its concluding segments. He 

I requested the Conference to turn to Section III, page of THE CONFERENCE 

PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1984/ Few moved the adoption of the 

budget. 

Rufus Stark rose for a question. He wanted to know if the Conference 
understood the line item concerning The Methodist Home for Children and 
explained the way compensation was now coming to the Home. 

Worth Lineberger asked which budget we were voting upon. Few 
responded that it was the one on the yellow sheet that had been revised 
from the one that was actually published in THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, 
RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1984. 

The budget was adopted. 

Report of the Committee on Episcopacy ; Langill Watson brought the 
reportT Watson spoke of the previous evening and of the tremendous love 
and affection expressed for Bishop Cannon at this, his final conference as 
Bishop of the Raleigh Area. Watson reminisced about his first quadremmium 
with us and experiences of how he was and continues to be an outstanding 
leader who knows exactly what he is doing. Watson thanked Bishop Cannon 
for the years that he had had with us and honored him for them and asked 
that we have one further evening of celebration on June 28th at the 
Crabtree Valley Inn in Raleigh. He encouraged all those who could come to 

181 



Randolph R. 



plan to be there. Watson's tribute was dynamic and dramatic and was a 
fitting statement for a great bishop. Bishop Cannon responded to Watson's 
remarks and his obvious expression of love and concern. He also expressed 
appreciation to the clergy, the laity--all those who had made possible the 
depth and breadth of his episcopate. He gave thanks for the celebration of 
the evening before, yet he expressed confidence in the future and for the 
work he had yet to do. 

Historical Vignette ; William Preston Few, the last president of 
Trinity College and t irst president of Duke University, was characterized 
as one who made an outstanding contribution to the church in his office. 
He spoke of his call to Trinity College in Durham and of the work that 
ensued there and progressed. Few was portrayed by his ?-- o=r,H^Tr^h d 
Few. The presentation was received with appreciation. 

Report of the Committee on Resolution and References ; Bishop Cannon 
recognized ThomaT'A. Collins to bring tITe report. Collins questioned 
whether the report on Native American Concerns had been adopted. The 
Bishop said that it had been adopted. Collins next spoke to the resolution 
regarding inclusiveness in representation on boards and agencies through 
one half of all meetings during the quadrennium being held on Saturdays so 
that many persons could attend. The committee recommends that the 
resolution be changed to read that "some" of the regularly scheduled 
meetings be scheduled on Saturdays because of problems of meeting places 
and of the clergy persons problems in attending meetings on Saturdays which 
required considerable travel. Yet, they also wished to state that all 
committees should be sensitive to the needs of each individual council, 
board or committee meeting. The committee on resolutions moved concurrence 
with this as amended. The resolution as amended was adopted. 

The next resolution regarded the simplification of the effectiveness 
rating system used by Pastor/Parish Relations Committees. The Committee on 
Resolutions and Reference suggested that the word "drastically" under (a) 
be removed and the sentence, "The items in the annual review should not 
exceed three in number," should be deleted. 

D.E. Vaughan spoke to his resolution and the need to cease tinkeridng 
with the delicate balance between pastor and laymen. Vaughan spoke with 
great elaboration and feeling against the ministers evaluation procedure. 

Arvel Heafner spoke against the resolution. He felt that the 
evaluation was a means of providing help for the minister by the local 
congregat ion. 

Bishop Cannon outlined the parliamentary situation with regard to 
voting on this Vaughan Resolution — Subject: Paragraph 427 of the 
Discipline, entitled '^Evaluation." 

J.C.P. Brown rose to affirm what Brother Vaughan had said and ask that 
the wording be left exactly as he had it. 

Robert "^cKenzie spoke a point of clarification as to what the Board of 

Ordained Ministry had done. He asked for direction so that the evaluation 
instrument can be perfected because the North Carolina Conference 

Evaluation Committee procedure as administered by the Board of Ordained 

Ministry had been taken quite seriously. McKenzie noted that it had 

already been modified several times and he pointed out that it could be 
modified as frequently as necessary. 

Pearl West spoke against the deletions from the resolution. 

Langill Watson moved the previous question and it was so ordered. 

The Collins amendment lost. 

The Vaughan resolution was adopted. The Conference showed its obvious 
approval by granting sustained applause. 

Bishop Cannon brought the Watson motion before the Conference and 
asked the secretary to read it. Conference secretary pro tern Joseph Bethea 
read it. Bill Simpson spoke to the matter after asking the question as to 
whether the motion meant that we would no longer have an administrative 
assistant to the bishop. The bishop said that he would think so. Simpson 
spoke against the motion and moved that it be tabled and be brought back 

182 



before the 1985 session of the Annual Conference. The bishop ruled that 
this was not par 1 iament ar i ly possible. 

Motion ; Jimmy Cummings moved that the Watson motion be tabled and 
referred. The Watson motion was tabled. 

Point of Personal Privi lege : Ernest R. Porter moved "that the North 
Carolina CorTference authorize the Conference Council on Ministries to do a 
direct mail solicitation of funds to underwrite the production of a drama 
at Methodist College, "The Invisible Fire" (which concerns John Wesley's 
conversion), to honor the Rev. William Lowdermilk and to establish a "Bill 
Lowdermilk" scholarhip at Methodist College." The motion was seconded. It

particularly expressed appreciation for the scholarship fund that was 
established in his honor. Bishop Cannon spoke words of affection to 
Charles McAdams.

minutes had been read and approved for all sessions through the evening

resolution honoring Vernon C. Tyson for his work as district superintendent

be considered answered after the appointments had been read. The 
Conference adopted it.

been done by James H. Bailey.

WILLIAM L. FREEMAN 
1916-1983 




William Lawrence Freeman died June 12, 1983, and a lot of persona died 
with him. To some, he was the starchy Naval chaplain who broke the bad 
news and toasted the good, who played the "Naval Hymn" at every shipboard 
service, and who loved the sea as much as any mortal could. To others, he 
was the Methodist minister who sanctified births and deaths, who preached a 
Sunday sermon filled with references to Greek mythology, and who squeezed 
every possible dime from every possible source to build a new sanctuary for 
a burned-out church. To still others, he was a conference rebel, a 
renegade, and a troublemaker. To me, his daughter, he was many things, but 
I remember him most as a man who believed in serving others, and a man who 
delighted in even the smallest of life's pleasures. 

Dad's principles were not always popular with his colleagues or his 
parishoners. He believed, for instance, in the equality of all human 
beings long before it was popular in the South to do so, and his insistence 
that anyone, black or white, be allowed to worship in his church left him 
squarely at odds with his parishioners. Despite the threatened, 
ultimately the actual, loss of that parish, he refused to renege on 
values he held. 

Dad was sick, to one degree or another, for the last twenty years 
his life, and so did not leave a lengthy, glowing list of church and ci 
accomplishments. But he lived his life, for as long as he was able, as 
believed we were meant to live - in the service of others. He served 
country and his fellow servicemen as a Naval chaplain during World War 
and the Korean Crisis; he served God, the church, and his parishioners 
25 years as a minister; and he served countless young men in trouble with 
the law in his 12 years as a teacher and a counselor for the North Carolina 
Department of Corrections. 

Life was hard for Dad; it tried him with years of disability and pain. 
But, despite the limitations imposed by his illness, for the duration of 
his life he retained a remarkable ability to seek out small delights. He 
took pleasure in the simple things - the fall of night, the budding of his 
dogwood tree, the laughter of his granddaughter - and in doing so, taught 
those of us who knew him that joy is always available to those who seek it 
out. 

During his life. Dad was many things to many people - a chaplain, a 
minister, a counselor. To me, he ws a father to respect and be proud of. 
I was proud of his willingness to sacrifice for his principles, proud of 
his desire to serve others, and proud of his ability to enjoy his life. I 
remain proud to have been his daughter. 

William Lawrence Freeman was born in Greensboro on April 7, 191i5. He 
attended Asbury College and Duke University, and served as pastor at 
Broadway, Kitty Hawk, Edenton, Scotland Neck, Jonesboro Heights in Sanford, 
and Lakewood in Durham. He died in Durham on June 12, 1982, and is 
survived by his wife, Kathryn Aldridge Freeman, a son, William Lawrence 
Freeman II, a daughter, Patricia Ann Freeman, and a granddaughter, Kathryn 
Lucille Hagler.

WADE A. MULLIKIN 
1919-1983 



Wade Mullikin was first and foremost a man of God! He was a man of 
God everywhere he went. No one knows exactly when God began to be 
important to Wade, but you could not miss the fact that He was, once you 
came to know this man. 

Life began for Wade Allen Mullikin in Anderson, South Carolina, on 
October 1, 1919. His parents, Tom and Ethel Mullikin, almost burst with 
pride over having this son. 

Following his boyhood years in Anderson, S.C., where he attended 
public school, he met and married Irene Holcombe. They were married on 
December 10, 1942. To this union two daughters were born. Julia and 
Janice survive their father as does Irene, his wife. Both daughters are 
married now, with two children each - Julia to James R. Batchelor: children 
James David and Glenn Cooper, and Janice to Robert E. Haskins: children Joy 
Lynn and Leigh Anne. 

After Wade and Irene's marriage came years of work. But always there 
was the call of God on Wade's life. Finally, he started to school again. 
First to Louisburg College, at Louisburg, N.C., then to Atlantic Christian 
College in Wilson, N.C. While serving student appointments he continued on 
and attended the Pastors' School at Duke Divinity School. 

One can say many things about Wade Mullikin, but the most important 
thing to be said is that Wade was a caring, loving, compassionate man of 
God. This was evidenced in his life as he went about serving God through 
the United Methodist Churches he was appointed to serve. His pastorates 
were long ones because of his effectiveness. In 1958, Wade was appointed 
to the Nash Charge where he served until 1964. In June of that year he was 
sent to Mount Pleasant Church near Bailey where he and Irene lived and 
worked until 1976, or until they were assigned to the Evansdale-Black Creek 
Charge. Here they lived until Wade's death on August 28, 1983. His 
funeral was conducted by Dr. Jack L. Hunter and The Reverend Nelson 
Fulford. 

Pages and pages can be written about Wade Mullikin's life within and 
without the church. One could enumerate his accomplishments such as his 
emphasis on evangelism and the bringing of new converts to the Lord. Or we 
could talk about his tenderness and compassion in times of bereavement or 
sadness. Then there was his emphatically Biblical preaching and his 
personal faith in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Wade always wanted 
to introduce you to his Lord! For Christ was alive to him, part of all he 
did. 

This Christ brought joy and laughter to Wade's life in so much that 
one could sense that here was a man who truly walked with God. And even 
when life held up turbulent times, the Presence was still there. 

This is what made this simple man great. He never dreamed of large 
pulpits or overwhelming crowds. Just a place to serve God and persons is 
all he asked. This is what he asked and this is what was given. 

We shall miss Wade Mullikin. We shall miss the sound of his laughter 
and his footstep on the gravel, but we shall continue to hear his clear 
call for us to follow Christ, the source of his life. 

As you love me let there be 
No mourning when I go, 
No tearful eyes, 
No hopeless sighs. 
No woe, - nor even sadness! 
Indeed, I would not have you sad, 
220 



For I myself shall be full glad. 

Rather, of your sweet courtesy. 

Rejoice with me 

At my soul's loosing from captivity. 

With me "Bon Voyage!" 

As you do a friend 

Whose joyous visit finds its happy end. 

And bid me both "a Dieu." 

And "Au re voir!" 

Since, though I come no more, 

I shall be waiting there to greet you, 

At His Door.

LAWRENCE J. BRIDGES 
1922-1983 




Lawrence James Bridges was born on New Year's Day 1922 in Rocky Mount, 
North Carolina. His father worked for the railroad. The family moved to 
Wilmington where Lawrence graduated from New Hanover High School. After 
completing the Pastor's Course at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, 
Lawrence returned to North Carolina where he earned a Bachelor of Arts 
degree from Wake Forest and a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Duke 
University. 

He married Dorothea Lee Bryant on February 8, 1959, and to their 
family was born Samuel Lawrence Bridges and Elizabeth Ann Bridges. Dorothea 
died on September 7, 1976. 

Lawrence once wrote about a personal experience of the love of God 
through Jesus Christ at the age of 15. He continued, "My call was a desire 
to witness to the love of God that had been experienced in conversion, and 
to carry that witness in the structure of the church and the rearing of a 
family. " 

And "carry that witness" he did. With his family, Lawrence Bridges 
carried the Gospel from the salty marsh banks of the Shallotte River to the 
red rolling hills of Alamance County spanning over 32 years. His 
appointments were: 

Shallotte: Camp; Princeton; Southport: Trinity; Franklinton; 
Durham: Carr; Wallace; Burlington: Grace; Garner: St. Andrews; 
Tabor City: St. Paul; Dublin: Singletary. 

Lawrence died of a massive heart attack on November 5, 1983. Services 
were held both in Dublin and Durham after which his body was laid to rest 
beside his beloved Dorothea in the Maplewood Cemetery of Durham. 

What Luke said about Barnabas might well have been written about 
Lawrence James Bridges: "He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of 
faith. " (Acts 11 :24)

have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of 
righteousness. "

ROBERT STEWART BRODIE 
1917-1983 

Robert Stewart Brodie was born December 1, 1917 in Motherwell, 
Lanarkshire, Scotland. His father, a lay pastor in the Church of the i 
Brethen, and mother brought seven children and two grandchildren to thisi 
country in the 1920s that they might have a better chance to choose their- 
own way of life. After high school Stewart came to Raleigh to work with i 
the railroad as a freight agent. He and some young adult friends cleaned I 
out a basement room at Edenton Street Church for use as a classroom. In i 
that group, known as the John H. Harris Class, he met Helen Hunter, a 
Raleigh photographer. They were married in 1944 while Stewart was serving 
in the U.S. Navy. After his discharge in 1945, he went back to work with 
the railroad and was sent to New Bern. It was at a young adult retreat at 
Louisburg College that he said "yes" to a call to the pastoral ministry. 
As this was also a call to prepare, it meant leaving New Bern and his job 
to attend Louisburg College. In 1948 he was assigned to the West Halifax 
Charge, then a student appointment. In 1950 Stewart and Helen moved to 
Florida where he entered the University of Florida and service at a student 
appointment at Micanopy. After graduation in 1952 he entered the Duke 
Divinity School during which time he served the Spring Hope Charge. His 
appointments after graduation were: Scotland Neck, St. James: Tarboro, 
Grifton, Zebulon, Hope Mills, Weldon, West Burlington, and the Gatesville 
Charge. He died November 20, 1983, in Moses Cone Hospital, Greensboro, 
where he was a patient. 

Funeral services were held at the Gatesville United Methodist Church 
on Wednesday, November 23, conducted by the Reverend Kermit Braswell, 
District Superintendent, and the Reverend Ray Sharp of Ocoee, Florida. A 
second service was held that afternoon by the Reverends Braswell and Sharp, 
assisted by the Reverend Charles Cooper and the Reverend Dr. Joseph Bethea. 
Interment was in the Bethlehem Church cemetery. 

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Helen Hunter Brodie, one daughter, 
Mrs. Fred (Betsy) Roberts of Graham; two sons, Robert Stewart Brodie, Jr., 
of Summerfield, and Edward Hunter Brodie of West Germany; three sisters, 
Mrs. Jeanne Travis of Detroit, Michigan, Mrs. Bessie Ballantyne of 
Dearborn, Michigan, and Mrs. Helen Davis of Tonowanda, N.Y., one brother, 
George Brodie of Allen Park, Michigan, and four grandchildren. 

Stewart Brodie loved life. One of his greatest joys came when he and 
Helen traveled to his native Scotland in 1974. He will be remembered for 
his humility and his warm smile. Ray Sharp spoke of Stu as being a friend, 
counselor and Christian brother, one with a deep sense of commitment to and 
love of his church. He sought to be true to his ordination vows which 
included this question: "Will you maintain and set forward, as much as 
lieth in you, quietness, peace and love among all Christian people, and 
especially among them that shall be committed to your charge?" Stewart 
Brodie gave answer, "I will so do, the Lord being my helper." For the next 
thirty-one years Stewart would do these things faithfully, joyfully, and 
humbly. These verses reflect well his positive outlook on life: 
I do not ask that crowds may throng the temple. 
That standing room be at a price; 
I only ask that as I voice the Gospel, 
They may see Christ. 

I do not ask for churchly pomp or pageant. 
Or music such as wealth will buy; 
I only ask that as I voice the Gospel, 
Christ will be nigh. 

223 



I do not ask for earthly place or council. 
Or of this world's praise any part, 
I only ask that I will voice the message. 
From Jesus' Heart. 

I do not ask that men may sound my praises. 
Or headlines spread my name abroad; 
I only pray that as I voice His message, 
That men find God.

NICHOLAS T. CUCARE 
1915-1983 




My father. Rev. Nicholas T. Cucare, was born on a small farm near 
Bellevue, Ohio, on March 2, 1915 - one of seven children. He was reared a 
Roman Catholic but joined the Evangelical Church at 17 years of age. He 

received his undergraduate work at Bowling Green State University of Ohio 
and his Master's degree in Education Administration at Indiana University 
in 1950. 

Being a member of a large family whose father was deceased, he began 
selling newspapers at the train depot at age 7, and summers he worked as a 
farm helper on neighboring farms. This experience taught him about life at 
an early age, and therefore, he was able to communicate well with others 
and grew to become a very practical person. 

While attending the Evangelical Church in Bellevue, Ohio, he met my 
mother, Sara E. Leininger, whom he married on May 19, 1940, in Bowling 
Green, Ohio, where he worked as a teacher-coach in the public schools. 
While living in Bryan, Ohio, he was led to the Lord by a local United 
Brethren pastor and my mother, (who had earlier accepted the Lord.) My 

parents were fortunate to be able to attend Bryan Bible through courses 
from Moody Bible Institute while my father still kept his teaching and 
coaching positions. He did much lay-speaking in various churches in the 
Bryan area and taught a Sunday School class while my mother gave piano 
lessons and led the church choir. 

I remember our moving to Fremont, Ohio, in 1949. There my father 

began taking the Home Study Course prescribed through Union Theological 
Seminary, Dayton, Ohio. Thus he could continue his teaching while 

accumulating enough credits to become ordained in 1954. He served the 

following charges in Ohio: Lucky, Moline, Riley Center, Belmore-Townwood, 
Canaan, and N. West Parish. (The former four charges were Evangelical 
United Brethren and the latter two were United Methodist.) 

My parents moved to Lumberton, N.C. in 1975 to be near me and my 
family in their retirement years. While in Lumberton, my father pastored 
his last charge, Asbury-Pineview Methodist Churches, for about 4 1/2 years 
and retired in December of 1980, for a total of almost 25 years in the 
ministry. Also he had retired in Ohio in 1974 from 33 years of public 
school administration, teaching, and coaching. 

My sister and I think how blessed we were to have had him teach us 

224 



science and health in elementary school, as he brought live examples to 
school and taught more from his early life experiences than from the text 
book. The teachers under his supervision dearly loved him because of his 
cooperation and a down-to-earth philosophy. 

He and my mother both enjoyed working together in the various 
churches. He never compromised with the Lord and kept his promise to the 
Lord by never refusing a chance to witness. My sister and I often samg 
together at special meetings and also at school functions, with my father 
speaking and my mother playing the piano. 

While in Lumberton, N.C., my father was guest speaker often at 
Extended Care unit of Southeastern General Hospital, at Wesley Pines 
Retirement Home, and the Cancer Institute. He also conducted revivals in 
the area, was invited often to preach in other denominations in the city 
and surrounding areas, and testified at Full Gospel Businessmen's 
International meetings occasionally. 

His sense of humor and "common sense" approach to life made him adjust 
easily to any situation, and his generosity was often noted by his friends. 

His last year was often spent in the hospital in Lumberton, N.C., 
taking chemotheraphy for cancer of the colon-liver, and he frequently 
witnessed to hospital patients and personnel. He never lost faith in his 
Lord and was an inspiration to all those around him. During the first 6 
months of his illness, he even did some substitute preaching locally. He 

"touched" many lives during his life on earth. 

On December 5, 1983, Rev. Nicholas T. Cucare passed away at 
Southeastern General Hospital in Lumberton, N .C . The funeral was held at 
Pineview United Methodist Church, Lumberton, N.C. on December 7, 1983, 
wwith the Rev. Charles Mewborn officiating. Interment was at the Garden 
of Faith Cemetery, Lumberton, N.C. His funeral service was a celebration 
service with the congregation singing several of my father's favorite 
hymns. Rev. Mewborn used II Timothy 1:12 and II Timothy 4:7,8 plus I 
Corinthians 13 and the 23rd Psalm as Scripture. The hymn was "He Lives". 
I feel that this poem which I wrote for Father's Day, June 20, 1982, (which 
was also read at his funeral service), typifies him: 

Portrait of a Man - Nicholas T. Cucare 

Italian by birth, 

full of passion and compassion, 

with strong family ties. 
Devoted husband, bread winner. 
Proud father. 
Teacher of youth, and 
"Man of God" by profession. 
Lover of nature, good food, and the 

simple joys of life. 
Caretaker of gardens, planter of trees. 
Fisherman and "Fisher of Men," 
Pasta maker. 

Storyteller and comedy man, 
"Pioneer" dietitian. 
Believer in the American dream: 

"with hard work and Justice for all!" 
Servant of those in need. 
An earthly "Blessing" in God's eyes. 

My father: an honest man 

a strong man 

a "gentle" man. . . . 
A Man for All Seasons! 

{Judy Romine, daughter) 

Although we all miss him a great deal, we know now that he is without 
pain and suffering and is rejoicing with his Savior! 

He is survived by his wife, Sarah, and two daughters, Constance 
Penhorwood and Judith Romine, and a granddaughter, Christine Romine, and 
three sisters.

MARTIN REED CHAMBEI 
1895-1984 



Martin R. Chambers was born April 12, 1895, in Obion County, Tenn. , to 
W.A. and Elizabeth Johnson Chambers, and died January 8, 1984. He had been 
a resident of Arbor Acres, the Triad United Methodist Home in 

Winston-Salem since shortly after the death of his wife Dena in 1979. 

Well schooled in biblical studies, theology, literature and the social 
sciences, he was concerned that religious knowledge be integrated with the 
best of literature and scientific inquiry. His abiding curiosity was 

indicative of his faith that all reality attests to divine truth. 
Therefore, truth may be pursued with openness and without fear for wherever 
it leads all truth speaks of God's truth. 

On the differing doctrines of creation and the controversies that 
arose, he was well versed and wrote several essays on the subject. One of 
his lifelong pursuits which he maintained through his retirement years was 
to reformulate and rewrite his views on the subject "Growth in the 
Knowledge of God." At age 88, as he was slowing down, he continued to be 
the student. 

In churches he served he held fast to solid theological preaching 
which at times led him to take stands on issues that were less than 
popular. But he believed that his calling was to maintain "firmness to 
truth." 

He knew the words to almost every hymn. A high tenor he sang loud and 
harmonic--a bit off key at times but not enough to bother him. 

Martin Chambers was a graduate of McFerrin Academy in Tennessee and 
was ordained as a Methodist minister in 1916. He graduated from Trinity 
College (Duke) in 1922; Emory Grad. in Sociology, 1942-43; UNC-CH , Grad. 
Fellow in Sociology, 1943-44; NC State, Research Fellow, 1944-45 with M.S. 
in Rural Sociology. He served on Governor Broughton's Commission on Health 
and Med. Care for Rural People in North Carolina. 

Among his books and articles were 9 volumes of statistics showing the 
record of each church in the N.C. Methodist Conference, Production Story 
1950 - 59 , with supplement in one volume 1962; Look at the People 1950 and 
Look at the People 1960 . These materials were used as resources for 
locating two colleges and more than 100 new Methodist congregations. Other 
articles were published in the Christian Advocate (Chicago) and Church 
School magazines. He also enjoyed Hesperian Literary Society activities. 

He served churches in Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia. In the North 
Carolina Conference he served Tyner, Murf reesboro, then moved to the 
Holston Conference. Later he served in the North Georgia Conference until 
he returned to the N.C. Conference for graduate study. After one year as a 
sociology professor in Arkansas he returned to his full time pulpit 
ministry in 1946 at charges in Milton, Fayetteville, Rockingham, Rowland 
and Tabor City where a coronary attack forced his retirement in 1958. 

Later he moved to Thomasville to be near his son Bob, wife Sara and 
family, following the death of grandson Martin. He then joined the staff 
of Memorial Church, Thomasville, 1962-68. 

He married Dena Thompson, an East Carolina '21 graduate, in 1922. 
They have two children: John Allan with NASA in Huntsville, Alabama; and 
Robert Tillman a pediatrician in Winston-Salem; two grandchildren: Dena 

Ruth Stanley and John Robert Chambers; and two great grandchildren: Eric 
and Sara Rose. 

Funeral services were held at Mt. Bethel Church in Bahama, N.C, on 
January 10, 1984, with interment following. Memorial services were held at 
the triad Home on January 13.

JAMES F. SAWYER 
1904-1984 




James Franklin Sawyer was born on November 22, 1904 in Elizabeth City, 
North Carolina, and departed this life on January 16, 1984. 

He pastored numerous churches in the North Carolina Conference during 
his 49 years in the ministry and retired from St. Paul United Methodist 
Church in Hamlet where he was residing at that time. 

Funeral services were held at the Community Mission United Methodist 
Church in Chester, Pa. , with the eulogy being given by the Rev. Jesse 
Walker, pastor. Rev. Sawyer served as Rev. Walker's Assosicate Pastor in 
Wilmington, Delaware, Philadelphia, Pa., and Chester, Pa. Rev. Sawyer was 
buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Elizabeth City, N .C . 

Rev. Sawyer is survived by: three daughters, Mrs. Betty S. Ham of 
Newark, Del., Atty. Laura F. Sawyer, Winston Salem, N .C . , and Mrs. Psyche 
Coley, Greensboro, N.C.; one brother, Joseph Sawyer, a niece, a nephew, 
four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. 

During his lifetime. Rev. Sawyer chose two professions which afforded 
him numerous opportunities to serve God, and with His divine guidance, also 
be of help to his fellow man. This commitment was such a very moving 
factor in his life that his testimony was: 
"Lord let me live from day to day. 
In such a self-forgetting way. 
That even when I kneel to pray. 
My prayer will be for others." 

Rev. Sawyer had a special gift which allowed him to impart words of 
wisdom when one needed them most; to pen a letter more comforting than any 
human embrace; yet compose poetry so beautiful that it would bring tears to 
the human eyes. 

His daughter, Betty, with whom he resided for the last five years, 
feels truly blessed because God allowed her to share his last few years. 
He really lived life to the fullest with much of his time being spent in 
quiet meditation. 

His memory cannot be adequately displayed here today, for it is 
written in the lives of the many that he has touched — both young and old. 

"If I can help somebody as I pass along. 
If I can cheer somebody with a word or song. 
If I can show somebody he is traveling wrong. 
Then my living shall not be in vain." 

Let this be the epitaph of Rev. James F. Sawyer.

GEORGE PAPPENDICK 
1934-1984 



George Pappendick was killed on January 26 when a tree he was helping 
a church member cut fell on him. He was 50 years old nine days before his 
death. He is survived by his wife, Gregg, three children. Dusty, Mary 
>Jita, and Paul, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Pappendick, and a brother, 
Tom. 

George had been a Methodist minister for seven years, entering Duke 
iDivinity School in 1977 after a career in business. While at Duke he was 
Ithe minister of the Mt. Tirzah-Helena charge in Person County. Upon 

[graduation from Duke he was appointed to the Christ-Cedar Cliff churches in 
[Alamance county and he was serving there at the time of his death. His 

funeral was held at Cedar Cliff and was conducted by the Reverend Paul 
Boone. He was buried at Southside Cemetery in Troy, N.C. 

How can George best be described? He was a good man, an 

"exceptionally good man" in the words of some of his fellow ministers. A 

former army captain who worked actively for peace, a former businessman who 
worked to feed the world's hungry. 

I once asked George what he saw his role as minister as being. His 

answer was simple and powerful, "to care for my people, where they are, and 
how they are, and to reflect the larger caring of God by doing this." In 

all those seven years, he did this well. 

One friend commented after the weekend of his death, "It is awesome to 
see all the people who have celebrated George's life during this. It 

reaffirms all I believe to see the enormous impact that this quiet, gentle, 
good man had on these hundreds and hundreds of persons of all ages and all 
walks of life. " 

There is a quote from Peter Byre, S.J. that has been our family's 
favorite: 

"We are simply asked to make gentle our bruised world. 

To tame its savageness, 

To be compassionate of all, including ourselves. 

And in the time left over from these ministries of justice and care 

To repeat the ancient tales and go the way of God's foolish ones." 
The quote sums up this man and describes all of what he was and did, for 
truly did he gentle that part of our bruised world that he was allowed to 
touch. What more can anyone offer in return for being given the gift of 
life? We celebrate him, and we wouldn't have missed him for anything. He 
was a gift to us and we walk in thanksgiving for that. 

Gregg, Dusty, M.J., and Paul Pappendick 



JOYCE VIRGIL EARLY 
1910-1984 




Joyce Virgil Early, son of Roland Pratt and Julia Putnam Early, was

During his years of service he held numerous positions of leadership 
and responsibility in the North Carolina Annual Conference. His 

contributions beyond the local church included eight years as a member of 
the Commission on World Service and Finance; eight years on the Board 
Ordained Ministry, four as registrar and four as chairperson. He 

elected a delegate the Jurisdictional Conference in 1958 and to 
Jurisdictional and General Conferences in 1972. 

Joyce Virgil Early was a dedicated and effective proclaimer of 

Gospel of Jesus Christ. He left two volumes of his sermons, 

Incomparable Christ and Seasonal Sermons , published in 1978, and Overcomers 
With Christ , that was printed after his death. He wanted to continue the 
good news of the Gospel and felt this could be done through the printed 
word. 

It was my joy to count him my dear friend and one of my most loyal 
supporters in the ministry. I will ever be grateful for the contribution 
he made to my life. 

He was known as one who walked with Christ, a very effective preacher, 
able administrator, wise counselor, devoted pastor, husband and father.

Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go 



Love that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in thee; 

1 give thee back the life I owe. That in thine ocean depths 
its flow may richer, fuller be. 

Light that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to thee; 
My heart restores its borrowed ray. 

That in thy sunshine's blaze its day May brighter, fairer be. 

229 



Joy that seekest me through pain, I cannot close my heart to thee; 

1 trace the rainbow through the rain. And feel the promise is not vain 
That Morn shall tearless be. 

Cross that liftest up my head, I dare not ask to fly from thee; 

1 lay in dust life's glory dead. 

And from the ground there blossoms red Life that shall endless be. Amen.

CRAWFORD B. HICKS 
1919-1984 

' Crawford Bryant Hicks was born in Vance County, North Carolina, on 

.November 24, 1919. He was the son of Thomas Ezra Hicks and Annie Hunt 
iHicks. His mother died when C.B. was 4 years old. Leaving behind him an 
outstanding athletic record in Epson High School, he managed the family 
country store and also engaged in farming. He served in the United States 
Navy during World War II. 

C.B. was married to Elizabeth Christine Leonard of Henderson on April 
18, 1945. To this family was born two daughters: Judy Christine Hicks 
Bullard of Wilmington and Betty Bryant Hicks Barefoot of Route 4, Dunn. 
Elizabeth was killed in a car accident on March 10, 1978. On November 30, 
he was married to Margaret Hunt Hicks of Hallsboro who survives him. 

As a young man, C.B. lived next door to the parsonage of the City Road 
Methodist Church in Henderson. He was profoundly influenced by the pastor, 
Harold Leatherman, and became deeply involved in the worship and work life 
of that coangregat ion. He wrote, "My call to preach came while Harold was 
preaching. He stretched out both arms as a cross to indicate what Christ 
had done. I lost view of the minister and saw only the Cross of Christ and 
knew that I must commit my life to His service." 

C.B. received his training for ministry from Louisburg College and the 
Supply Pastor's School of Duke University. 

C.B. served as a pastor for 26 years. His appointments were: Piney 

Grove-Mt. Carmel; Bolton-Shiloh; Hallsboro; Wrightsboro; West End. 

In West End, he was named the Outstanding Lion of the Year, but his 
most fruitful ministry was in Hallsboro. In fact, he served there twice. 
The first time was a 4 year tenure. Nine years later the people of 

Hallsboro petitioned the Bishop for his return so he came back and spent 
the remainder of his ministry. 

He was a moving force in organizing the Hallsboro Volunteer Fire 
Department, serving as the Chaplain and traffic director. He was greatly 
beloved by the young and old, by his members, and those outside his 
membership. 

C.B.'s health was not very good. He became ill early in his ministry 
and took a 6 months leave of absence. Later he fought a noble battle with 
cancer, but finally accepted a medical leave in the spring of 1983. He 

died in Columbus County Hospital on April 24, 1984. Hallsboro Church was 
filled to overflowing by family members, ministers, and friends who came to 
pay tribute to one who had slipped out of our arms into the arms of Jesus. 
His body was laid to rest in the Lake Waccamaw Cemetery next to his first 
wife.

With the words of Charles Wesley we salute Crawford Bryant Hicks ancij 



'Servant of God, well done! 
Thy glorious warfare's past; 
The battle's fought, the race is won, 
And thou art crowned at last."

JAMES HECTOR MCCALLUM 
1918-1984 



James Hector McCallum, affectionately known as "Mac," was born 
September 23, 1918, near Maxton in Robeson County, North Carolina. He was 
the youngest of twelve children born to Jefferson and Jackie Ann McCallum. 
After graduating from public school in Robeson County, he earned the 
Bachelor of Science degree from Fayetteville State University and thej 
Master of Science degree from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical 
State in Greensboro. He also studied at Southeastern Baptist Theological 
Seminary at Wake Forest, North Carolina and at the School of Evangelism at 
Scarritt College, Nashville, Tennessee. 

Mac was admitted to the North Carolina Conference of the Central 
Jurisdiction in 1942. He served the church well and was a leader in th< 
merger of the North Carolina-Virginia Congerence with the North Carolina 
Conference of the United Methodist Church. His appointments included 

Hoffman, Mt. Zion, Bonmore, Piney Grove, Lauringurg, Cool Springs, Maxton, 
Jerusalem, Beauty Spot, John Wesley, Wilson Temple, Administrative 
Assistant to the Cabinet, Sanford District Superintendent, and Conference 
Council on Ministries Staff. In all of these assignments, Mac was loved 
and admired because of his calm, quiet character and his outstanding 
leadership ability. He was a sterling example of God's grace and the 
Christian ministry. 

Mac loved music and often served as the musician in churches where he 
was pastor. He also organized a choir from several churches which sang at 
the 1980 session of the North Carolina Conference. He served on several 
boards and agencies and led the North Carolina Conference clergy delegation 
to the 1976 General Conference of the United Methodist Church. He made a 
long and lasting contribution to the church he loved when he co-authored 
the book To Be Faithful To Our Heritage , a history of black United 
Methodists in North Carolina. 

In addition to his work in the ministry, Mac served the children of 
North Carolina as a public school teacher and principal for twenty-one 
years. 

Mac was married to Wilhelmina McCallum and they have one daughter, 
Rachelle. They celebrate the victory of his life along with two sisters, 
Mrs. Lora Jane Townsend and Mrs. Fanny Perry and a great host of other 
relatives and friends. 

James Hector McCallum died on Friday morning, April 27, 1984. He died 
as he lived - peaceful, calm, quiet, and serene. The service to celebrate 
his home-going was held on Sunday, April 29, 1984 at 3:00 P.M. at John 
Wesley United Methodist Church in Fayetteville, conducted by Reverends 
Albert Schuler and Joseph B. Bethea. 

231 



The words of Charles Wesley .are appropriate for Mac: 

"Servant of God, well done! 

Thy glorious warfare's past; 

The battle's fought, the race is won 

And thou art crowned at last."

JOE CEPHUS SHORE 
1912-1984 




Joe Cephus "Jack" Shore, son of Guthrie L. Shore and Ida Helper Shore 
was born May 11, 1912, in Randolph County. He died at his residence. 

Route, Graham, on May 25, 1984, after one year of declining health and one 
week of critical illness. 

; He is survived by his wife, Mattie Davis Shore, one daughter, Mrs. Jo 

'Ann S. Auman, two grandsons, five sisters and four brothers. 

Jack remained active after his retirement in 1978 at the age of 66 
until the age of 71 when his health began to decline. During his illness, 
he never complained and was very patient. He expressed his desire to live 
but said, "I'm not afraid to die." He remained alert until the last few 
minutes of his life, keeping an almost constant prayer vigil. 

The funeral was held at Salem United Methodist Church on Sunday, May 
27, 1984, at 4:30 p.m. and was conducted by Rev. W. Hoyt Cheek, present 
minister at Salem United Methodist and Rev. John R. Poe, a former minister 
of Salem United Methodist. 

Jack was laid to rest in the Phillips Chapel United Methodist Church 
cemetery under a soft and gentle rain at 5:30 p.m. in the family plot, 
where an infant daughter was buried October 11, 1949. 

Jack first held local preacher's license in the Salem Methodist Church 
in 1932, during the ministry of Rev. W.M. Loy. During the years that 

followed, he continued to feel his call to the ministry and was again 
issued local preacher's license February 26, 1955 from the Quarterly 
Conference of Salem-Chapel Charge. He then enrolled at Elon College in the 
fall of 1955 to prepare himself for the full time ministry. Jack received 
his education from Alexander Wilson High School, Elon College, and Duke 
University. He joined the North Carolina Conference in 1955 and was 
appointed to serve the Asbury Methodist Church in Chatham County until the 
next conference met. He was ordained Deacon in 1960 and Elder in 1962. 
His pastorates included the following charges in the Burlington District; 
Asbury, 1955-56; Glencoe (now St. Luke), 1956-57; Hightower, 1957-63; 
Bellemont, 1963-68; Fairview, 1968-71. He also served Fletcher's Chapel, 
1971-76, in the Durham District, and Lemon Springs, 1976-78, in the Sanford 
District. 

Jack worked at many different occupations, but the one that brought 
him the most joy was serving the church as a Methodist minister, which he 
often mentioned from the pulpit. His dedication as a good layman helped to 
prepare him for the ministry. He worked with the young people as a 
counselor in his home church for many years, taught the Men's Bible Class, 
served as Church School Superintendent, Church Trustee, Charge Treasurer 
for the Salem-Chapel Parsonage Building Fund, and served a total of nine 
years as president of Phillips Chapel Memorial Association. At the time of 

232 



his death, he was serving in the following offices at Phillips Chapel; 
United Methodist Church: president of the Methodist Men's Club, 

vice-president of the Memorial Association, and part time teacher in the 
Men's Bible Class. 

He was active in civic organizations. Jack served on the budget 

committee for the Alamance County United Fund in 1954-55. After retiring, 
he helped to organize the Meadow Creek Ruritan Club and served as temporary 
president. Later he served as its chaplain and on various committees. 

Being a man of the soil, one of his main hobbies was gardening. He 

raised a good variety of vegetables, which he enjoyed sharing with friends 
and neighbors. 

He was a firm believer in promoting all phases of the work of the 
church and worked hard to accomplish this. While a patient at Duke 

Hospital, he was asked by one of his doctors what part of the ministry he 
liked most. His answer was, "All of it, the preaching, visiting, and 
helping people in any way I could." Jack had the capacity to love and 
enjoy people of all ages. 

His first sermon was preached at Salem Methodist Church, which was his 
home church. His last sermon was also preached at Salem United Methodist 
Church, September 25, 1983, using as his text "The Future Calls Twice." It 
was a sermon on the Great Commission and a very inspiring one, even though 
he lacked the physical strength to preach as he had done in the past. 

"Love Divine" was one of his favorite hymns. We would like to quote 
one verse to his memory. 



"Finish then Thy new creation. Pure and spotless let us be; 

Let us see Thy great salvation. Perfectly restored in Thee; 

Changed from glory into glory. Till in Heav'n we take our place. 

Till we cast our crowns before Thee, Lost in wonder, love, and praise." 



i 



We are thankful for his strong faith in God and the strength he gave 
us. Because as he often said, "Life - must go on."

MARGARET ELIZABETH HEATH 
1903-1983 

Margaret Elizabeth Frank Heath was born to missionary parents — John 
Wesley and Josephine Case Franks — October 11, 1903 in Yokahama, Japan. The 
"purpose" of her life was set in this place of her birth as she returned to 
the states to attend Duke University from which she received her B.A. 
degree. 

Another step in fulfilling her "purpose" in life was taken when 
Margaret met and married Cuyler Freeman Heath on April 30, 1926. She 

became his "helpmate" in the work of ministry visiting with Freeman, her 
minister husband - as he made calls in the homes, hospital, community, and 
conference. 

Margaret's "purpose" was extended as she returned to East Carolina 
University and received a Master's degree in Special Education This degree 
enabled her to help those with speech disabilities. 

In the midst of being a "helpmate" to Freeman, she became the mother 

233 



f four children - two daughters, Jo and Margaret, and two sons, John and 
uyler, Jr. 

The many roles Margaret fulfilled with such Christian graciousness 
ndeared her not only to her family as "Queen of the Family", but also to 
he church and district parsonages she showed forth "queenly" graces. 

Margaret was a multi-talented person. In the midst of being the wife 
f a busy pastor and district superintendent, the mother of four active, 
;hildren, a worker in the church, district, and community, a teacher of 
hose with speech disabilities, a worker with older adults, she increased 
er love of music by taking organ lessons. 

Upon their retirement in 1965, Margaret and Freeman returned to the 
lome they had built in Clinton. However this retirement was merely another 
'step in her "purpose" for life as she continued to minister with Freeman as 
ie served as interim and supply pastor of Harrells, Newton Grove, and the 
:li nton Circuit. 

Margaret and Freeman were active members of the First United Methodist 
:hurch of Clinton - a church which they served from 1949-1953. It was 
iuring their pastorate that Margaret drew the plans for the fellowship hall 
and the existing educational building. It not only serves the fellowship 
leeds but also as the Fred Packer Sunday School Classroom. Margaret 
continued her own ministry by teaching the Junior Wesley Class as did 
■'reeman in the Fred Packer Class. 

On Wednesday, June 8, 1983, as Margaret and Freeman were sitting down 
:o have lunch, she bowed her head and slipped so peacefully from her 
earthly home "into the Father's House where there life is f orevermore. " 

Following interment in the Clinton Cemetery at 2:30 on Sunday, June 
12, a Memorial Service was held at the First United Methodist Church at 
3:00 p.m. by her pastor, F. Odell Walker, and Dr. Edward Gunter of Grace 
United Methodist Church. 

The family received friends in the fellowship hall, for which she drew 
the plans, following the Memorial Service. The large number who came by 
confirmed the truth of the words: "Servant of God, well done. Your 
glorious warfare is past. The battle's fought, the race is won, and you 
are crowned at last." Amen and Amen!!! 



ALLIE HOBBS ALEXANDER 
1894-1983 




"I believe that to help boys and girls be better citizens for our 
communities of tomorrow is the finest goal I can achieve in my teaching." 

"Allie" was born Rachel Alice Hobbs, July 10, 1984, to Andrew Jackson 
and Rhodema Copeland Hobbs, the fourth child of three sons and three 
daughters, in Hertford, N.C. She received her eduction at East Carolina 
Normal School and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior 
to her marriage to the Reverend Clark Conrade Alexander, August 31, 1921, 
Allie taught for ten years in Gates County, N.C, where her family then 
lived, driving her horse and buggy to a one room school house. 

Allie met "Alec" (Rev. Alexander) while he was a student at Trinity 
College, now Duke University, through her brother, A. Jarvis Hobbs, also a 
student at Trinity and late minister of the N.C. Conference. After Alec 
received His B.A. degree in 1919, he went to Princeton University where he 
was awarded M.A. and B.Th. degrees. Their first child, Rachel Hobbs, was 

234 



born during his first pastorate at the Dutch Neck Presbyterian Church, 
Dutch Neck, N.J. Rev. Alexander was then called to the First Methodist 
Church in Tupelo, Miss. Here they completed their family with two 
daughters, Martha Clark and Sarah Newland. The Alexanders continued their 
moves within the church: to Birmingham-Southern College, Birmingham, Ala., 
where Alec was Professor of Bible and Religious Education and to Louisburg 
College, Louisburg, N.C., where he was President. He returned to pastoral 
duties in June 1931 at the Methodist Church in Clinton, N.C. where he died 
January 21, 1932. 

After ten years of marriage as a loving wife and mother, and as a 
devoted minister, professor and college president's wife, Allie was alone 
in a new community with three small children. The church and townspeople 
opened their hearts and the family remained in Clinton. While she was 
attempting to renew her teaching certificate in order to support the 
family, Allie experienced many personal illnesses and the death of her 
daughter, Martha Clark, April 18, 1936. She then taught school in Clinton 
from 1938 until 1954, during which Rachel Hobbs and Sarah Newland graduated 
from the Clinton schools and Greensboro College. Allie moved to the 
Cleveland, Ohio, area to be near her married daughters and grandchildren. 
Her close ties to Clinton were never broken, for she made frequent visits 
back to see her many friends. She continued teaching and then substituter 
until the age of 75. 

Allie's work within the church never ceased: through choir, Sunday 
School missionary and ecclesiastical duties. She was an active member of 
the Wesleyan Service Guild which named her a Life Member in 1954 in the N. 
C. Conference. In 1965 she was elected an Honorary Steward of the Lakewood 
United Methodist Church, Lakewood, Ohio, in recognition of her faithful 
service. 

During her lifetime, Allie enjoyed china and oil painting, piano and 
voice. Cultural activities of all the arts were among her greatest 
pleasures. Travels took her throughout the U.S. and Canada. Two trips 
were of particular significance: one to Louisburg College commemorating its 
175th anniversary in 1962, where she stayed at the home of the President, 
Dr. C.W. Robbins, a friend from Tupelo days, and the other to the 
Centennial Celebration in 1967 of the First Methodist Church, Tupelo, Miss. 
In the summer of 1970, Allie attended the Passion Play at Oberammergau 
during a three-week tour of Europe, but had to return to the U.S. before 
the end of the tour due to a broken hip. From that time forward her 
activities lessened, but her spirit remained indominitable. 

As it became evident that Allie needed custodial care, she was moved 
into a retirement home in May, 1980, where she experienced another broken 
hip. Although time slowed her body and mind, her sparkling eyes, friendly 
work and smile never dimmed. She went to sleep on August 28, 1983. 
Memorial services were conducted by the Rev. Roger G. Talbott, Lakewood 
United Methodist Church, at the Eliza Jennings Home in Cleveland on 
September 8. Rev. Talbott based his remarks on a Mother's Day sermon 
delivered by Allie's husband long ago. Surely, Mother Dear, as she was 
known to her loved ones, heard his words and the gospel hymns that were 
played in her honor on that day. She was laid to rest in Clinton, N.C. 
beside Alec and Martha Clark. 

Allie is survived by two daughters, Rachel Wiedemer, Lakewood, Ohio 
and Sarah Dickson, Rocky River, Ohio; seven grandchildren; four 
great-grandchildren; two sisters, Josie Myers and Evelyn Hyland, 
Scottsdale, Ariz., and many nieces and nephews.

ELLA LILLIAN EDWARDS PEGG 
1901-1984 

[ Ella Lillian Edwards Pegg was born October 27, 1901 in Wadesboro, 
North Carolina to Leon and Sarah Leitch Edwards. She died September 22, 
1983, in Richmond County Hospital, Rockingham, North Carolina. 

After teaching school in Gaston County for three years, Lillian was 
married in 1927 to Jabez Paul Pegg. Children of this union were Sarah Pegg 
Chance of Rockingham, Paula Pegg Schwehm of Tacoma, Washington, Jabez 
Gilbert Pegg of Winston-Salem, and Wilbur Leon Pegg (deceased). 

In addition to her husband and children, Lillian is survived by a 
sister, Leona Edwards of Wadesboro, nine grandchildren and three great 
grandchildren. 

Lillian and Paul served our Lord for over 40 years in ministries in 
Stokesdale, Burlington, Lexington, Vance Circuit, Gibson, Seaboard, 
Nashville, Kenansville, Hamlet, New Bern, and Bolivia. After retirement to 
Rockingham in 1967, they served the Troy Circuit for three years. 

Our mother took an active part in supporting our father's ministry. 
We remember her as she joyfully played the piano, taught Sunday school and 
attended circle meetings. She shared a genuine Christian love with all the 
people of all the churches. 

When the minister read Proverbs 31:10-38 at the funeral of our mother, 
he chose wisely. For "the heart of her husband did safely trust her and 
her children did rise up and call her blessed." 

Our mother was first a wife - deeply devoted to her husband.. The 
intense love she had for our father grew with each passing year. 
Celebrating with them their 56th anniversary April 16, 1983 was indeed a 
joy and a blessing. 

We remeber our mother, Lillian, for her encouragement, for the joy she 
showed in our achievements and for her help in making our dreams reality. 
The courage she showed through her many years of illness and suffering can 
only enchance our admiration for her. 

To her family and friends. Mother gave a steadfast love which never 
faltered - never wavered. The message of her life was "As the Father hath 
loved me so have I loved you - continue ye in my love." 

The funeral service for our dear mother was held in the First United 
Methodist Church in Rockingham. Dr. Harold Leatherman and Dr. J.V. Early 
conducted the service. Mother's favorite hymns, "Amazing Grace," "In the 
Garden," and "How Great Thou Art" were sung by the choir and congregation. 
Burial was in Sandy Ridge Cemetery near High Point. 

Lovingly submitted, 

Sarah, Paula and Jabez (children)

One of her favorite poems {author unknown), which was read at her

MY HAND IN GOD' S 

Each morning when I awake I say, "I place my hand in God's today" 

I know He will walk close to my side. May every wandering steps to guide. 

He heads me with the tenderest care. When paths are dark and I despair. 
No need for me to understand. If I but hold fast to his hand. 

My hand is in his — no surer way. To walk in safety through each day. 
By his great bounty I am fed. Warmed by his love and comforted. 

237 



When at day's end I seek my rest. And realize how much I'm blessed. 
My thanks pour out to him, and then I place my hand in God's again. 

Because of this faith, she is not dead. She lives — "She has put on 
nvisibility. " 

Helen S. Culbertson, Daughter 




CAROLYN RUTH GRIFFIN SETTLE 
1953-1984 

Our best dreams are God's gifts and are meant for doing and Carolyn 
briffin Settle died on April 17, 1984, doing her dream. For a month and a 
half, Carolyn and her husband, Don, had pedaled east on a cross-country 
bicycle trip, giving blossom, to a see of hope planted early in their 
marriage. On that clear Tuesday afternoon near Alexandria, Louisiana the 
'dream slipped into the path of an unyielding truck and Carolyn died from 
[those massive injuries. She was thirty years old. 

Before leaving on their journey, Don and Carolyn had talked with their 
•pastor about "the service to have in case something happens to us." It was 
to include six hymns. It did. The community of faith gathered at Trinity 
United Methodist Church in Durham on Easter Sunday 1984 for a service of 
memory and celebration, singing, praying, sharing God's good Word, and 
claiming the promise that "nothing can separate us from the love of God in 
Christ Jesus our Lord." 

Carolyn was born in Miami, Florida, October 8, 1953, the daughter of 
William Ward Griffin, Jr. and Helen Shealey Griffin, now of Ocala, Florida. 
A bachelor's degree in biology and chemistry from Emory University, 
graduate work in biochemistry at Duke University, and a degree in Nursing 
Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill equipped for 
her ministry of healing as a registered nurse, most recently at Duke 
Medical Center. Her plans for the fall of 1984 had included the Master's 
nursing program at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill with a 
goal of becoming a Family Medicine Practitioner. 

Carolyn and Donald Thomas Settle were married on September 20, 1974. 
They came to Durham in 1976 for Don's studies at Duke Divinity School. He 
was admitted into full membership in the North Carolina Annual Conference 
and ordained elder in 1982. His appointments were as the Associate Pastor 
of Duke Memorial United Methodist Church in Durham (1979-80), Pastor of 
Mount Bethel United Methodist Church in Bahama (1980-83), and as graduate 
student in the field of Radio, Television, and Motion Pictures, at the 
University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill (1983-1984). 

In addition to her husband and her parents, Carolyn is survived by a 
brother, Dane Griffin, and a sister, Martha Griffin Belcher. 

The benefits of time have not made it any easier to reflect on 
Carolyn's death within God's economy. It just doesn't fit. How easily we 
can see God's presence in Carolyn's gift for music. How fully we recognize 
God's power in kindling in her heart the love of His name. But this — this 
death. It just doesn't fit. But there is a gift of God's grace which 
makes room in our experience for mystery. And we are bold to be grateful 
that God does not desert the mystery. And that is just where these 

thoughts about Carolyn should end, focused on the presence of God.

COMPOSITE REPORT OF THE DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS jl* 

Bishop Cannon and members of this conference, it is indeed an hono<(i( 
for me to present, on behalf of my colleagues in the Cabinet, thl^' 
composite report to this historic 1984 Annual Conference. While Amerlcadii 
Methodism dates back to 1784, it was in 1828 that we had the North CarolinB« 
Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church, which met at Whitaker'»f 
Chapel in Halifax County. Not until 1837 did the minutes show the firsf 
list of appointments for the North Carolina Conference, which was create|!:i 
that year. Needless to say, from those significant, but small, beginnings 
our North Carolina Conference has grown to become one of United Methodism' 
truly great conferences. 

Our 1983 record of financial giving hit an all-time high, with 100»l 
payment to World Service, Temporary General Aid Fund, Genera] 
Administration Fund, and the Episcopal Fund. The districts did extremel'"' 
well in paying their Outreach Ministries. The Elizabeth City District pai 
100%, and the Burlington, Rocky Mount, and Goldsboro Districts paid ou 
over 99%. 

Evangelism did not take a back seat either this past year, as we h 
our largest net gain in membership in over twelve years with 1,220 members 
White Plains had the largest number of new members received by a singl< 
church with 151, and also the largest number of persons received oi 
profession of faith with 61. The highest percentage increase (28.12%) was 
the McKendree Church on the Rocky Mount Parish charge. 

Evangelism and missions continue to go hand in hand with approximately 
$100,000 received thus far for the African Church Growth and Development 
Fund toward a conference goal of $150,000. Giving continues to be good foi 
the Ten Dollar Club with $97,126.00 received, allowing grants to be made ol 
$96,000.00. In addition, our conference, through the able leadership oil 
our pastors and the strong commitment of the laity, gave $32,960.30 to th« 
National Division, $254,500.83 to the World Division, and $100,804.86 tc| 
U.M.C.O.R. 

Along with the excellent giving to missions. North Carolina Volunteers 
in Missions have been very busy sending out Work Teams. Teams have beer 
sent to repair the Eastern North Carolina Indian School in the Cohariei 
Indian Community. Repair teams went to Mission Rest Home, as well as St. 
Mark Church in Greenville. From March through June, a series of teamg| 
involving 55 people repaired the manse at Manchioneal, Jamaica. In July, a| 
team of six visited Wesley Church at Kingston, Jamaica, for the purpose of| 
teaching Bible School. In October, twelve members from two Durham churches 
started building a church in Dalvey, Jamaica. Then In February, seven' 
ministers from the Rocky Mount District continued the work on the church 
building In Dalvey, as well as preaching throughout the Manchioneal 
Circuit. Here at home. In the Goldsboro District, an Hispanic migrant] 
ministry was spearheaded In Duplin County. 

During 1983, there have been great Improvements In our church 
buildings, as facilities were either planned or built. In the BURLINGTON 
DISTRICT, Salem has planned a fellowship hall and classrooms at a cost of 
$150,000; Amity, a fellowship hall, classrooms, and office space at a cost 
of $200,000. Grove Hill In the Durham District plans a fellowship hall at 
a cost of $75,000. In the ELIZABETH CITY DISTRICT, Edenton Is building a 
sanctuary for $750,000 and Pllmore Memorial has built a lovely educational 
building. Mt. Olivet Church, Manteo, has a major renovation of the 
sanctuary planned at a cost of $700,000. In the FAYETTEVILLE DISTRICT, 
McGee Church on the Clinton Circuit remodeled Its sanctuary. The Coharle 
Church has renovated the Interior of their sanctuary and educational 
building , and the men and women of the church did all of the work. 
Epworth, Beulah, and St., Andrews have completed additional facilities, and 
Marvin Church on the Cape Fear charge has plans for a new fellowship hall. 
In the GOLDSBORO DISTRICT, new fellowship halls were built at Garrls Chapel 
and LaGrange. Beston and Garrls Chapel added to their educational 
facilities. GREENVILLE DISTRICTreports a fellowship hall under 
construction at Bath. The NEW BERN DISTRICT has constructed new buildings 
at Stacy and St. James. Newport has completed Its fellowship 
hall-educational annex at a cost of $318,000. Swansboro Is completing Its 
new educational annex at a cost of $243,000. Rlverdale, Arapahoe, and 
Shady Grove have completed new church facilities. Ground was broken for 
Garber Church's new $380,000 educational complex. The RALEIGH DISTRICT 
makes note of Asbury In Raleigh consecrating Its building. First Church, 
Cary, Is making plans to build a new educational wing. Flat Rock has 
consecrated their new building, Zebulon is moving Into their new 
educational building, and Edenton Street Is embarking on a $500,000 
renovation project. Plans are underway at St. Andrews, Jerusalem, and St. 

241 



imes for building projects. New sanctuaries are under construction in the 
'.ckingham District at Jerusalem, Mt. Zion, Philadelphia, and Prospect, 
lile First: Hamlet and Wall's Chapel are renovating their sanctuaries. In 
,e ROCKY MOUNT DISTRICT, Elm City, St. James: Tarboro, Halifax, Scotland 
•ck , Northampton, Conetoe, and McKindree have all made major improvements 
id additions to their church facilities. First: Rocky Mount has just 
aunched a new educational building campaign at a cost of $1,100,000. In 
le SANFORD DISTRICT, church buildings have been completed or are underway 
: Troy, Trinity, West End, Snyrna, Biscoe, Candor, Cameron, Siler City, 
:ar, Cool Springs, Carthage, and Roseland. The WILMINGTON DISTRICT has 
ngaged in building improvements in Shallotte. Camp Church has enlarged 
ts sanctuary and built a new educational building at a cost of $200,000 
nd Wesley Memorial consecrated a fellowship hall and staff office space at 
cost of $400,000. 

The following building projects were dedicated to the glory of God. 
arsonages: Salem, Tyrell Charge, Farmville, St. Peters, and Sharon. 
hurches: Mt. Zion on the Currituck Charge, McGee on the Clinton Charge, 
nd Grifton. Fellowship hall: Fairfield on the Swan Quarter Charge, 
ethel, Hawkins-Tabor Charge, and Smith in Roanoke Rapids. I am pleased 
urther to report that the first Methodist Youth Home outside of Raleigh 
as dedicated in Fremont on October 2, 1983. 

Our churches continue to take seriously the well-beingof our parsonage 
families. We now have some of the finest homes to live in. New parsonages 
jre being constructed or renovated in the following districts. Elizabeth 
ity: Plymnouth, Outer Banks Parish; First, Elizabeth City, Fayetteville: 
^nion, Erwin; First, Raeford, and Camp Ground. New Bern: Centenary and 
Riverside. Sanford: First, Siler City; St. Luke, and Light House. Rocky 
^ount: Enfield, and Spr ing-Garysburg. Wilmington: Fair Bluff and Cerro 
ordo. 

We were all concerned over the tornado disaster that hit some of our 
hurch communities, destroying many homes. We are, however, grateful for 
the $256,851 that our conference has received to aid many of these 
lanfortunate victims. Our people always rally in time of need. For 
example, in the Rockingham District, five churches and many homes were 
-damaged and countless others were completely destroyed; yet the people 
^responded with food, clothing, and funds. Work teams from churches moved 
'into the area to help. Churches provided meals at center sites for both 
[workers and homeless families. This is only one of many examples in which 
|our districts shared throughout our entire conference. 

j Mother Theresa, that frail and wrinkled nun, has perhaps demonstrated 
for the world more than any other in our lifetime her statement, "We each 
have a heart to love, with hands to serve." Too many churches see 
themselves only as citadels of loving hearts without service to others in 
the world, while other churches are willing to take on all sorts of 
projects without a real sense of Christian mission. One makes a witness 
without service, while the other is service without witness. 

I am very pleased to report that during this Bicentennial year, our 
conference, through the twelve districts and eight hundred and forty-two 
churches, has sought to bring about these two important areas of the 
Christian faith which John Wesley worked so hard to bring together. We 
need always to have hearts that love and hands that serve. Nothing more 
clearly did, can, and should set us apart as United Methodist than 
evangelism and social witness. 

To you. Bishop Cannon, our Episcopal leader, we say a word of sincere 
gratitude. In so many ways, you have fervently challenged our conference 
to take seriously the message of John Wesley and, more recently, as you 
gave that sterling Episcopal address at General Conference, you challenged 
the entire church to a stronger witness of its faith in Jesus Christ. 
While we regret that you must leave us after this conference, the 
contributions which you have made to the life of this conference and the 
entire world church will live on in the hearts and lives of us all. 
Therefore, we, the District Superintendents, join in expressing on behalf 
of our entire North Carolina Conference our deep love and gratitude for 
your outstanding Episcopal leadership during these past four years. 

While we do not wish at this time to say "good-bye" to you, we do want 
to stand and say a big "thank you". 

Jack L. Hunter 
Cabinet President

CONFERENCE LAY LEADER'S REPORT TO THE 1984 ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Many of us probably learned early to recite, along with using hand 
signals, the familiar lines, "Here's the Church; Here's the Steeple; Open 
the doors and where are the People? Here's the Church; Here's the Steeple; 
Open the doors and THERE are the People!" WE ARE THE CHURCH, and only ir 
this unity is found its strength and vitality. '' 

Our episcopal and clergy leadership in this conference has long beer 
outstanding, and it is through our bishop, pastors and conference clergy 
leaders that the laity are empowered in the ministry of the Church. We 
express gratitude for the reciprocal relationship in mission shared by 
clergy and laity in the North Carolina Conference. It is the primary 
enabling factor in what we realize as a People of God, and as your lay 
leader I urge the continual strengthening of this important bond. 

We have seen within the past year a growing commitment by laity to the 
various programs of the Church, as indicated by increased participation 
along with genuine excitement within the districts. For instance, 
attendance at the lay rallies exceeded 10,000, a new record; and attendance 
at the January Workshops neared 4,000, also a new record. The Conference 
Board of Laity has been active in leadership. The United Methodist Women 
have continued to challenge other groups in active service, and the United 
Methodist Men have shown significant growth and development, probably the 
fastest growing segment within the church organization. Our Youth 
Ministry, in both program and youth involvement, is among the strongest 
when compared with other conferences; and we have made progress in the 
commitment to Young Adults, particularly in our larger urban churches. In 
the Camping Program, our conference is recognized as an example for others 
to follow. 

The Lay Speaker Program has attracted much interest, with a resulting; 
large increase in the number of certified lay speakers. Perhaps no other 
program has been more effective in empowering the laity in the ministry of 
speaking, leading, and caring--and we need to place more emphasis on it at 
both the district and conference levels. 

As we move forward into a new quadrennium and a new century of 
Methodism, let me call upon the laity to work diligently toward a more 
common focus to emphasize our unity rather than to accentuate our 
divisineness or that which would detract from our common heritage and 
commitment. We have needed that attention in recent years toward becoming 
a more inclusive church, and we yet need to reach real togetherness as 
United Methodists; but that which would unite us, the Gospel of Jesus 
Christ, is paramount and must be the basis of our identity and purpose. 

I view the role of the Annual Conference Lay Leader as active rather 
than passive, as an advocate for the laity of the Conference. As we move 
forward together, we will develop this advocacy role and will work for 
increased participation by the laity in the program structures of the 
Conference. The points of view of lay people will be presented, and for 
this to happen we will need to have input from the laity. The associate 
conference lay leaders and I will emphasize that the laity have a very 
important part in the general ministry of the Church. Let us be able to 
say with confidence that when we open the doors, "There are the People and 
We are the Church. " 

J. Allen Norris, Jr. 

REPORT OF THE GNITED METHODIST WOMEN TO THE 1984 ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

As we celebrate the Bicentennial of American Methodism, United 
Methodist Women invite you to join in recognizing the Centennial of women 
organized for Christian witness and mission outreach. 

"To Love Is to Risk" is the 1984 theme of the United Methodist Women 
of the North Carolina Conference. We celebrate the lives of women who for 
100 years have been willing to risk, reaching out in love to people the 
world around. They founded missionary societies; sent missionaries and 
deaconesses across our nation and around the world; became advocates for 
the rights of women, children and minorities; built schools, hospitals, 
children's homes and community centers; developed a program of mission 
study, spiritual enrichment and leadership development; and raised the 
money to support these undertakings. They faced the future with faith and 
hope and the determination to share the love of Jesus Christ and the good 
news of the Gospel. 

Today in the North Carolina Conference we have 698 organized units of 
United Methodist Women with a membership of 28,000. In contrast to the 

243 



jrly beginnings when members were asked to pledge two cents a week and a 
rayer, the women of our Conference in 1983 gave almost $259,000 to 
■issions and have pledged $262,500 for 1984. 

In 1869 on a rainy night in Boston eight women met and organized the 
irst Methodist Women's Missionary Society. One year later they had 
ecruited and raised the money to send Clara Swain, a doctor, and Isabella 
noburn, a teacher, to India as missionaries. 

Sally Lou McKinnon went as a missionary from our Conference in the 
ate 1920's to Zaire, Africa where she established a school for girls. She 
,as given an African name which means "Blessings of Love". The women of 
,ur Conference brought to the Annual Meeting last October $12,069 as a Love 
ffering for the Blessings of Love High School in memory of Sally Lou 
cKinnon. 

Life Memberships with the money contributed going to missions have 
een a means of honoring those who have given dedicated service to the 
ause of missions. Now called Special Mission Recognition, $23,700 was 
iven last year as many were honored in this way. 

United Methodist Women have always held close ties to the Women's 
ivision which has provided new officer training, materials and workshops. 
his year Conference and District Officers participated in a Christian 
isciplines Workshop as part of the Quadrennial Design. 

Formerly a part of the Women's Missionary Council of the Methodist 

;piscopal Church, South, our Conference is now a member of the Southeastern 

urisdict ion. This spring 104 women from the North Carolina Conference 

[journeyed to Birmingham where in song, in scripture, in the spoken word we 

jfxperienced the peace, the love, joy, freedom and wholeness of Shalom. 

Mission Studies have been an important part of the program of United 
lethodist Women from the beginning. In the Jubilee year 1928 Mrs. J. 
^eGrand Everett presented the Conference a Study Jewel to be awarded each 
^ear to the District having the most mission studies. The Study Jewel and 
:he Reading Program continue to present a challenge. 

Our North Carolina Conference United Methodist Women entertained the 
Regional School last summer at Methodist College, and will do so again this 
/ear. 

The flags which will be used in the celebration of Missions Night at 
this Annual Conference were made by United Methodist Women. 

There are 82 flags representing the countries in the World Methodist 
Council, the World Federation of Methodist Women and the United Nations. 

We continue to support our North Carolina Conference projects: the 
Robeson County Church and Community Center, the Harnett-Fayetteville 
District Project and the Walnut Terrace Child Development Center. 

What a heritage we have received from those who have gone beforel 
*hat a wonderful fellowship exists in the units, large and small, and in 
the leadership of Conference, District and Local Officers. We are also 
grateful to our Bishop and the ministers of the North Carolina Converence 
for their interest and support. The work goes on, for we are "Committed to 
mission Tomorrow, Building on Yesterday". 

Margaret Saunders, President 



REPORT OF THE UNITED METHODIST MEN TO THE 1984 ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

It is my pleasure to give you a report from the fastest growing 
segment of the United Methodist Church - the United Methodist Men. 

1983-84 has been a good year for Methodist Men of the North Carolina 
l^onference. We have continued to grow in number of men and in the number 
of organized fellowships. 

Our year got off to a great start here at Annual Conference last year 
as Dr. Allen Norris, Conference President of United Methodist Men was the 
first delegate elected to General and Jurisdiction Conference. We applaud 
(Tour selection and were proud when Allen was named to replace Dr. Richard 
?earce as Conference Lay Leader. We were sorry to lose him as our 
president but look forward to his continued help to United Methodist Men in 
bis new position. 

I considered it both an honor and a challenge to follow in Allen's 
footsteps as acting president and was proud to have as acting vice 
president. Dr. Rudy Hillmann, District President of the Raleigh District 
Jnited Methodist Men. 

In October, I attended the Southeastern Jurisdiction meeting in 
^tlanta and was asked to go with a task force to Jamaica but because of an 
attack of radiation pneumonitis was unable to go. 

I am pleased that we now have a district president, either elected or 

244 



appointed in all twelve districts. |L 

In January, we published a United Methodist Mens handbook to be use 
as part of the January workshop which was well attended in most districts 
The book was also distributed to every church through the coordinated mai 
and at district and conference meetings. Our booklet will be incorporate 
with the handbook put out by National United Methodist Men this fall an 
will be distributed nationwide as well as being customized for individua 
conferences. 

In March, at the National Congress of United Methodist Men': 
conference presidents, I had the honor to be elected vice president for th 
Southeastern Jurisdiction and will take office at the Jurisdict iona 
Conference in July. Tom Maloney of the Western North Carolina Conferenci 
was elected president, so you can see that North Carolina is going to bi 
the pacesetter for the Nation because it seems that in United Methodist Mei 
as the Southeastern Jurisdiction goes, so goes the nation. 

Three of our district presidents have now attended one of the national 
training sessions for district presidents and we hope others will be ablt 
to attend this year. On May 19 we held our annual Conference meeting witl 
our speakers being Dr. Norris, Bishop Cannon, Jim Sneed, Dr. Bethea, Dr. 
Ross Freeman, and group singing led by Roger Searles. 

Officers for the next two years were elected: Ernest Wendell 
treasurer, replacing Bruce Hargrove who had served us well for four yearsjj 
Stanley Harrell, secretary; Dr. Rudy Hillmann, vice president; and mysell] 
as president. ' 

One of the many highlights of this meeting was the presentation of e 
life membership in United Methodist Men to Dr. Allen Norris. 

We are planning our first United Methodist Men's retreat to be helc 
here at Methodist College April 12-14, 1985. 

When the district presidents met last fall it was decided to 
concentrate on getting better organized. It is my hope and dream that 
during the next two years we will see all districts organized and electing 
their officers at an annual meeting or retreat. It is also hoped that with 
the help of the Bishop, the cabinet, the ministers, and the men of this 
conference, that we will have in place by 1986 a president or coordinator 
of United Methodist Men in every church or charge in this conference. 

I would say to the ministers that do not presently have a United 
Methodist Men's fellowship in their church that you are missing a 
tremendous opportunity in not tapping the help that United Methodist Men 
can be in meeting needs of the church the community and Methodism. 

I am constantly hearing stories of how United Methodist Men are 
helping to meet needs in their individual churches as well as reaching the 
needs of a new Chapel at Louisburg College. In Sanford they are meeting 
the needs of the new Light House Church, first by helping to get them a 
sanctuary and now by getting them a parsonage. In the Fayetteville 
District, they are meeting the need for a pool at Camp Rockfish and in the 
Rockingham District many individual fellowships reached out to meet the 
needs of victims of the tornadoes. At our conference meeting, we took a 
love offering to also help meet the needs of tornado victims. 

The Elizabeth City District recently held a training session for a 
task force that will go out and contact every church or charge in their 
district and try and get them to name a coordinator of United Methodist 
Men, to organize and to charter. At that meeting it came to us that maybe 
one of the reasons that many churches do not have Methodist Men 
organizations and that many men do not belong to fellowships that are in 

their church is because NO ONE HAS ASKED THEM. BECAUSE NO ONE HAS ASKED 

THEM. 

So my challenge is simply this. It's time to go out and ASK. Maybe 
someone will say yes. 

Bishop Cannon, we thank you for your help and support of United 
Methodist Men and wish you well in your retirement. 

Charles L. Sauls, President 



UNITED METHODIST YOUTH REPORT TO 1984 AMNUAL CONFERENCE 

As President of the Youth of the North Carolina Conference, I am sad 
to see this active and prosporous year coming to an end. When the 
Conference Youth Council first met last fall, we set many high and noble 
goals for the upcoming year. Attending various meetings during the year is 
a responsibility of each Youth Council member. One of these important 
meetings is the Youth Service Fund Task Force which met last January to 
decide what to do with the money raised during the past year and to set 

245 



ext year's goal which is $13,500.00. 

YSF is money raised by youth, spent by youth to benefit youth. 

It provides a way for youth to become involved, not just in words but 
n actions. I am very thankful to Mary Claudia Mason, our Conference 
treasurer, for her hard work in stressing the importance of YSF in order to 
*each our $12,500 goal last year. We had many new projects that needed our 
'ssistance through this special fund. An example of our out-of-conf erence 
irojects is Boy's Harbor, Inc. which is a large facility in Harlem that 
>rovides education, cultural development, recreational opportunities, basic 
skills learning, drug counseling, vocational training, and experiences with 
:he arts for Black and Hispanic children and youth. One of our 
LH-conf erence projects is Church Ministries United in which we provide aid 
;or rent, fuel for families burned out of their homes, medical supplies and 
jther needs. This project is a program that serves as a liaison between 
;he churches of Greenville and those persons with needs that can be met by 
10 other service agency. These are just some of the many projects in which 
:he youth of our conference demonstrate their involvement in missions in 
and out of our conference and around the world. I urge you to encourage 
che youth of your local church to contribute to his beneficial fund. Early 
this year six people represented our conference in the Southeast 
Jurisdictional Conference at Lake Junaluska. 

Mike Safley, Associate Director of CCOM with responsibilities to youth 
land young adult ministries, was elected the chairperson of the Southeastern 
Jurisdiction Youth Ministry at NYMO. 

The purpose of this assembly was to amend the SE Juris. Ministries 
By-Laws and to elect steering committee representatives to NYMO. The 
primary job of the Youth Council is to plan youth events and activities 
throughout the year. The UNA^ash ington Study Tour held in mid-March was a 
tremendous success. This year for the first time our conference combined 
with the Western NC Conference and took two bus loads of youth and adult 
counselors. Conference Rally Day having the theme "Friends under love. 
Family under God" was an exciting day here at Methodist College in April. 
This included a presentation about Joseph and his family by the Davis 
Street UMC in Burlington. We have two new programs offered for this 
upcoming year: A Work Team to Jamaica and Youth Ministry Leadership 
Training Weekend. I am especially looking forward to the Jamaica Work team 
having the theme "Cast Your Nets" since I will be one of the 15 youth 
reaching out during this unique missionary experience. Sr. High and Jr. 
High Workshop are also two memorable summer youth events. Jr. High 
Workshop in June will be a special time for junior highs in their 
adolescent struggles to "Piece their Puzzle. . .Together. " Sr. High Workshop 
in July will be a time of new discoveries for Sr. highs as they search for 
the "Light in the Darkness." Annual Conference Session for Youth I have to 
admit for me is the most meaningful event of all the youth activities in 
the N.C. Conference. While traveling the "Road Less Traveled" throughout 
the week the youth delegates will discuss certain issues that affect them 
and the entire world. It is important that each church be represented at 
ACS so they can vote on the various issues and elect conference officers. 
It is a time to share their innermost feelings with others and a time of 
spiritual growth. 

Throughout my high school years I have gone to many youth events and 
have thoroughly enjoyed' the unique experiences that each event offers. I 
encourage you, as ministers and lay persons, to support your local Youth 
Fellowship in order to help make it a strong and worthwhile organization, 
one that you yourself will benefit from and take pride in representing your 
church. I also ask you to encourage each youth in your church to attend 
summer youth events. The experiences they will gain will make a positive 
contribution to their lives and the life of the Church. Let me close in 
saying that it has been a great honor for me to represent the youth of our 
conference this year and I am thankful to have had this opportunity to 
serve our Lord aAd the United Methodist Church during this Bicentennial 
year.

GENERAL COUnaL ON MINISTRIES 
Report to the 1984 Annual Conference 



As our Conference representative on the General Council on Ministries 
during the 1980-84 quadrennium, it has been my responsibility to 
participate in the program planning of the General Church and to relate it 
reciprocally to the North Carolina Conference. It has been a rewarding 
experience to serve in this role, to experience first-hand the outreach of 
the General Church, and to recognize the leadership of our own conference 
in guiding and reflecting connectional programs. 

We struggled with many of the issues that recently came before the 
General Conference for discussion and action: the missional priority, 
special programs, language guidelines, world service allocations, and other 
topics of crucial Importance to our denomination. At the same time 
listened to calls for change, we worked to protect the traditions of our 
Church, to stress the unity that we have as United Methodists. 

Our Conference does have an opportunity to shape the nature of General 
Church programs through representation not only on the General Council on 
Ministries but also on the other General Boards. We have taken these 
responsibilities seriously and have attemped to reflect the viewpoints of 
the people within our Conference. Our representatives in the new 
quadrennium will do likewise.

CONFERENCE COUNQL ON MINISTRIES REPORT TO 1984 ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

The purpose of the Council is to (a) receive program recommendations 
rom local churches, district agencies. Annual Conference agencies, and the 
urisdictional and General Council on Ministries; (b) develop these 
ecommendat ions into a coordinated program to be recommended to the Annual 
onference and (c) provide implementation for and administration of the 
oordinated program as adopted by the Conference. All Annual Conference 
rogram boards and agencies shall cooperate with and be amenable between 
essions of the Annual Conference to the Council on Ministries in matters 
elating to the development, implementation and administration of the 
rograms. 

During 1983 and continuing into 1984 three very significant and new 
rogramming developments took place. First, a new timetable for program 
evelopment was established that gives more continuity entering a new 
uadrennium and offers outgoing boards and agencies and new quadrennial 
oards and agencies equal input in the process (see Section II, Book of 
eports). Second, a conference-wide Comprehensive Congregational 
evelopment Plan was developed which will enable us to use our resources 
personnel and financial) in the most creative way to revitalize existing 
hurches and begin new churches. It will help us implement the General 
hurch priorities for 1984-88 and more effectively meet the needs of 
ersons. Third, a task force has developed a plan relative to church school 
vangelism. This deserves our best effort to implement it. 

I commend to you the Program and Support Staff of the Council on 
inistries. They are skilled, dedicated, effective and faithful in their 
ork. During 1983, they made 687 different visits to local churches, 
ttended 154 different district and conference events and (including camps 
nd Media Center) had 5,204 contacts with local churches to provide 
esources. In addition to this, the coordinated mail is distributed to 
Imost 1,8 00 persons each month (at least the pastor and one lay person in 
ach local church). We are deeply grateful to the Reverend Alton Pugh Hill, 
r. for five years of excellent work as Associate Director for Missions and 
tewardship and to the Reverend Allen Wentz for four years of very good 
ork as Associate Director for Camping and Children's Ministries. Mr. 
obert Reed was a member of our extended staff for 32 years as the manager 
f Camp Chestnut Ridge and we are all in his debt for his devotion and work 
hat enhanced camping ministries. 

Concerning conference events, the January 1984 Workshops had a total 
ttendance of 3,994, the largest ever. The lay rallies of 1984 have 
eported a combined attendance of over 11,000, the largest in at least 10 
ears. Summer School continues to grow and be a good experience of learning 
nd worshipping together as clergy and laity. 

266 



May all of our planning and work have the central aim and purpose of 
bringing more persons into a redeeming relationship with Jesus Christ tha' 
causes us to be "change agents" in society even as we are changed. 

Ours is a ministry of service. 



Ernest R. Porter, Executive Directo: 



BICENTENTOAL TASK FORCE 

Nineteen eighty-three has been an exciting year for your Bicentennial- 
Task Force and the Annual Conference. Many great and wonderful things have' 
been happening. We look to greater things in 1984. 

BICENTENNIAL WORKBOOK: "Ideas for the Local Church" was prepared t« 
assist local churches in planning for the Bicentennial. Two copies wer- 
mailed to each church or charge. These have been well received. Othe: 
conferences in our jurisdiction have complimented us on this project, anf 
some have requested copies and permission to copy. 

BICENTENNIAL MAP: Two members of the Task Force (C.F. Grill and J, 
Huggins) prepared a conference map on Historic Sites and Points o: 
Interest. There were so many requests for the map we had to do a secon* 
printing. We hope churches will use the map for tours and studies. 

SLIDES AND FILMSTRIPS: Steve Hickle heads a sub-committee to prepare 
set of slides of historical sites, landmarks, and points of interest in oui 
conference. The slide presentation, with cassette, will be placed in th« 
Media Center of the conference. Filmstrips will be made from the slides, i 
copy of: the f ilmstrip will be placed in each district. This project will b« 
completed by early or midsummer of 1984. 

BICENTENNIAL YOUTH ESSAY: This project was carried out under th( 
direction of the Commission on Archives and History. The Commission has 
completed the project and the winners have been announced. We are verj 
appreciative of the work of the commission. 

At the time of the writing of this report, the Task Force is well int< 
completing plans for the Annual Conference. 

What a high privilege it is for this Task Force to serve th( 
conference in "Celebrating Methodism." We feel God will bless the Unite< 
Methodist Church as we move into the third century and great things wil! 
happen.

meeting in 1984.

ADULT AND FAMILY LIFE MINISTRIES 



There is no more urgent need before us today than that of adul «l 
Christian education. All persons learn. We do not say that all person! is' 
"can" learn but that all persons "do" learn. But we are accustomed to heir, 
entertained. We watch too many hours of television and know far too littl 
Bible. But life does not have to be lived that way. People can be change 
at any age. We do not have to be tied to yesterday's restraints. Close i«i 
minds can be opened again. While we tend to stay in the same old rut and t •'' 
repeat the past we can go on to maturity. We can be creative. We ce w 
believe in ourselves. We can dream dreams and see visions. 

This was the message heard by 29 persons from across the Nortfte 
Carolina Conference at the regional conference on Comprehensive Adul 
Ministry held at Gatlinburg, Tenn. , November 11-13, 1983. This was thl » 
message proclaimed by Dr. Malcolm Knowles, adult education authority 
Bishop Paul Duffey 

Dr. Wayne Linedecker (BOD), and Dr. Claude Young, editor, Churc 
School Publications. 

Later a team from these 29 persons designed and led the Januati 
Workshop class on Adult and Family Ministries, attended by 247 local churci 
leaders. The hope was that participants would go back home to enlarge thl 
scope of adult ministries in their local churches so that itt would becon 
comprehensive 

A church with a comprehensive adult ministry does not leave olde 
adults out. One out of every seven persons is 60 years old or older (morl 
than 28 million persons.) And a church with a "comprehensive adul 
ministry" does not leave singles out. In this family oriented society! 
where it is assumed that anyone who is not married is incomplete' 
undeveloped, immature or a failure, single adults make up a large, an 
growing, part of our population. In 1976 there were 49 million singl 
adults in our total population. Twentyu-six million had never been married 
Twenty-three million were "single again" (7.2 million divorced, 11. 
million widowed, 3.8 million separated.) Forty-six percent were under 
years of age. More young adults are remaining single longer. One estimat 
is that by 1985 (next year) 52% of our adult population will be single. Th 
sad thing is that so many singles feel that they are outsiders at so 
churches. What about at your church? 

Local churches need to be aware of the films in the Media Center tha 
can be used with marriage enrichment and couples communication events. Th'' 
series The Care and Maintenance of £ Good Marriage contains these si 
films: Why Good Marriages Often Fail , Identifying and Raising the Littl 



You , Scratching Where It~Itches , Sex: Resettirig "the Thermostat , Clearin 



Static on the Line , Keys to Keeping £ Good Thing Going . Other marriag 
oriente'a^f ilms are: The Weekend , You Haven 't Changed a Bit , I^ Do, I_ Do, an 
This Time Forward . 

The Council on Adult and Family Life Ministries is committed to th 
task of providing a comprehensive adult ministry in the North Carolin 
Conference. During 1983 two conference-wide training events were held.f I 
August a Marriage Enrichment basic workshop was held at Pinehurst, wit 
Malcolm and Mildred Mclver, international presidents of ACME (Associatio 
of Couples for Marriage Enrichment) as leaders. Berry and Dixie Barbour a 
co-leaders. For further information contact any of the above. The hope i 
that through a series of such events a network of qualified leaders will b 
made available to assist local churches and districts with marriag 
enrichment, couple communication and family enrichment/communicatlo 
events. i

BOARD OF EDUCATION 

)CAL CHURCH CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Few areas of local church life touch as many persons for Christ as the 
ograms of Christian education. Even granted some slight decline in 
irollment and attendance, well over 50,000 persons were in our North 
iirolina Conference United Methodist Sunday Church Schools each week of 
183. In addition, 47,772 were involved in other settings for Christian 
iucation, both short-term and on-going groups and classes. These tallies 
jpresent an estimated 3,000,000 hours of annual contact for the Gospell It 
5 an awesome responsibility. Almost two-thirds of those making professions 
: faith have been part of our own Church Schools. Christian education 

:..l>ntinues to be a major arena for developing and nurturing Christian 

ifllsciples. 

AMPING MINISTRY 

Increasingly, local churches are seeing our Conference camping 
inistry as valuable extensions of their own Christian education programs, 
otal attendance at our four camps rose by more than 10 per cent, with a 
Bcord setting 14,856 persons at the camps in 1983. Camp Don-Lee , our 
Idest camp, had the most people ever involved in its summer program; Camp 
hestnut Ridge hosted several of our special group camps; Camp Rockfish was 
sed by more people than any of our camps; Camp Kerr Lake expanded its day 
amp usage by 7 9 per cent. 

A residence for the manager-director was built at Camp Rockfish. The 
each mourishment and bulkhead project was completed at Camp Don-Lee. After 
years in our Conference camping ministry, Robert Reed retired and was 
onored at a dinner at Camp Chestnut Ridge. Bob and Fanny Reed contributed 
uch of the strength of our present camping ministry. To recognize their, 
he Board of Education designated one of area of Camp Chestnut Ridge "the 
eed Rustic Camping Area." 

£ADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT 

In 1983, there were significant opportunities for equipping the 
.eaders of local church Christian education. Five Christian Workers Schools 
ind two Confirmation labs reached f711 persons. A conference-wide 
:urric-u-shop attracted 441 people to Goldsboro for a day of training and 
for examination of United Methodist curriculum resources. Almost 1200 were 
;Ln age level ministry and leader development classes in the January 
workshops. Two education-related courses in the Conference Summer School 
reached 135 potential leaders. Youth ministry events involved almost 1000. 
Children's ministry introduced the TLC program for helping persons with 
responsibilities for children in the local church. 

F. Belton Joyner, Chairperson 

A RESOLUTION for the Bection of Local Camp Committees in 1984: 

Whereas on Junee 7^ 1982, the North Carolina Annual Conference adopted 
a structure for a Commission on Outdoor and Camping Ministries, to be 
effective in June, 1984; 

Whereas, the structure calls for the establishment of local camp 
committees nominated by the Commission on Outdoor and Camping Ministries 
and elected by the Annual Conference; 

Whereas, the Commission on Outdoor and Camping Ministries will not be 
organized before the 1984 session of the Annual Conference, thus preventing 
its nomination process for the local camp committees until 1985 and thus 
(Jelaying the locql camp committees' work for an entire year; 

Therefore, be it resolved that for the 1984-1985 Conference year, the 
Conference Council on Ministries is authorized to elect the members of the 
local camp committees pending their nomination by the Commission on Outdoor 
and Camping Ministries.

George W. Johnson, Chairperson 
BOARD OF EVANGEUSM 

Bishop Cannon, Members of the Annual Conference - It is with deep 
thanksgiving to God that we together celebrate the net membership growth of 
1,220 persons in our conference in 1983. A total of 3,381 persons were 
received on Confession of Faith in Jesus Christ. The faithful efforts of 
our laypersons and clergy. Bishop and Cabinet, are reflected in this 
largest annual net gain in over 12 years and our largest quadrennial gain 
in over two decades (2523). 

As our conference turns its attention more and more to evangelization 
and church growth, two significant developments will have impact far into 
the future. One is that the number of charges with ongoing Lay Visitation 
Programs has increased since 1981 from approximately 50 to 273. The second 
is that 350 of our charges had confirmation classes - a significant 
increase over past years in this crucial area of education and training. 

Our rejoicing must be tempered by facts such as these: 385 churches! 
showed net gains, but 337 had losses and 125 stayed even. There were 

slight declines in average worship attendance and baptisms and a continuing 
disturbing decline in Church School attendance. These mixed gains and 

losses must remind all that harder work is yet ahead. And never has Jesus- 
call been more relevant as, in observation of fields white unto harvest, he 
said: "Pray ye therefore." 

In the 56 counties within our conference, the Glenmary Research Center 
insists there are 1,531,515 unchurched persons. While our total population 
in eastern North Carolina has grown 15% the past 10 years, our conference 
has grown only one-half of 1%. The fields are white unto harvest: God is 
^^m ^^K^^K^ ^°/ "'2'^® laborers. There are still 1 1/2 million people 
within the bounds of our conference who do not know Jesus Christ, are not 
yet being reinforced for daily living by the means of grace. It would be 
regarded as the inalienable right of every person to see faith in Christ as 
a live option for him or her. To make them aware of that glorious option 
is our privilege and responsibility. 

Bishop Cannon, we offer sincere appreciation to you for your strong 
emphasis on evangelism. Nine of our 12 districts had membership gains in 
1983. We are moving in the right direction as we prepare to welcome and 
1999 ^^ ^^^ ^"^"^ ^^^ ^^ General Conference of doubling our membership by 

Our Board of Evangelims moves that these four persons be approved as 
Conference Evangelists: three for re-appointment , Tommy Tyson, John Hobbs, 
John E. Williams, and one for new appointment, Bobby Tyson. We have reviewed 
carefully the evaluations and general thrusts of the ministries of our 
conference evangelists and find their ministers to be effective, 
appreciated and widely sought. 

Again this year our Board of Evangelism on behalf of the entire Annual 

271 



Ciference wishes to recognize those churches and pastors who have done 
jbeptionally in the ministry of evangelization. Our recognition 

certificates reflect three categories of growth. We are recognizing 

{'arches rather than charges this year, as directed by our Conference last 

jne.

METHODIST BOARD OF PUBUCATIONS, INC. 

The North Carolina Christian Advocate is a ministry designed t( 
strengthen local churches, their pastors and members and offer valuabl( 
assistance in winning new converts to Christ. The newspaper we publish ii 
the vehicle through which this ministry takes place. 

For instance, at this juncture in the history of United Methodism whei 
an outside- of the regular-channels missionary sending agency has beei 
organized, it is imperative that Boards and Agencies at the national leva 
and the local churches they represent have the freest possible flow o; 
information. Because we have neglected the role of our conference 
newspapers aross United Methodism, there exists today a serious gap betweei 
the people in the pew and the heads of our various Boards and Agencies al 
the national level. 

Therefore, one of the primary functions of the Advocate is a ministry o: 
information. This ministry of Information has many shapes. Another "fo; 
instance:" A while back the Advocate carried the story of two Western Nortl 
Carolina Conference Sunday Schools in churches of small membership whicl 
were quite successful Shortly after we published the story of thei 
success, several churches down on the coast called the Advocate offlC( 
wanting to know how to contact these Western N.C. Conference churches. The^ 
said, "We believe we can do what they have done." 

The varied facets of this ministry which take place through the pages 
of the Advocate are too many to enumerate here, but another slgnificanl 
category of ministry is that of inspiration. The many stories our church's 
exciting history during this bicentennial year, special feature articles, 
our regular feature columns and editorials all participate in this ministry 
of inspiration. 

27 3 



In order for the ministry of the Advocate to maximize its potential 
or reaching the hearts and minds of United Methodists across North 
arolina, the Advocate has set for itself the state-wide goals of 
.ncouraging local church Advocate representatives to see that every United 
ethodist Family in the state receives one telephone call every year - 
tjear after year - asking our member families to either renew or subscribe. 
■ n churches where this is done, the conference-adopted goal of 10% of a 
rhurch's membership as subscribers has been easily exceeded (for instance, 
I 500 member church is asked to have 50 subscribers.) 

In an effort to promote this every-member telephone campaign I have 
)een in all of our 26 districts, several twice, meeting with local church 
advocate representatives and pastors. Although it is too early to report 
just how successful the February subscription campaign will be, initial 
returns from the churches indicate this will be one of our best campaigns 
in recent years. Counting subscriptions in transit - yet to be added - and 
jstimating year-end cancellations, it appears at present the Advocate's 
circulation is approximately 20,000. If the experience of the churches who 
faithfully telephone their members every year asking for renewals and 
subscriptions is an accurte index of expectations, this procedure, if 
adopted state-wide, could more than double the Advocate's subscription. 

I continue to be as excited about this ministry of the Advocate as the 
first I became the newspaper's editor. I am tremendously grateful to have 
Ars, Ruth Laughlin as our news editor, Mrs. Marie Fulton as our circulation 
manager, and Mrs. Margaret Hinshaw as our part-time bookkeeper. We could 
search the world over and not find persons any more dedicated than are 
these persons who frequently work nights and weekends without extra pay. 
iTheir devotion to duty is a constant source of inspiration to me. 
k We also are deeply indebted to our regular columnists whose labor of 

[love adds a dimension of inest imatable value to this ministry. 

The ministry of the Advocate is a joint endeavor of all interested 
jUnited Methodists across the state working together to produce what we 
believe is one of the finest publication of its kind in Methodism. 

The Methodist Board of Publication, and especially its officers, have 
given unselfishly of their time and talents to assist in this ministry and 
we are deeply indebted to each of them. Conference leaders, especially the 
cabinets of the two conferences, have been 100% in support of this ministry 
and this has been an invaluable ingredient in the Advocate's success. 

We come to the close of another conference year with high hopes of 
what the future holds for this ministry of the North Carolina Christian 
Advocate . May God continue to hold us in the palm of His hand and bless us 
with the Living Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ as we promote the interests 
of His Kingdom, in this world. 

C.A. Simonton, Jr., Editor 



TASK FORCE ON HUNGER/HUMAN NEED 

Did you know that because our North Carolina Annual Conference had 
"love in action" Human Need Fund, that $75,000.00 was granted in 1983 to 56 
ministries of mercy and compassion throughout each of our 12 districts? Two 
hundred and thirty-six local United Methodist Churches were involved in 
those special ministries along with many other churches 
interdenominationally. Thousands of persons received food, medicine, 
shelter, transportation, fuel and health care in times of crisis and dire 
privation throughout the 50 counties of our conference. We have put our 
love for God and His children into action in the North Carolina Annual 
Conference. 

Our fund has helped Methodist Churches to create/maintain and provide 
a shelter for the homeless and the transients in Wilson; a transportation 
program for the indigent in a rural Methodist Church Community in Bladen 
County; a health, nutrition and chore service for the elderly and homebound 
in Atlantic Beach; a district ministry of aid and concern for Hispanic 
Migrants in Duplin County; and a wholistic emergency aid ministry to 
persons in need through a local Methodist Church in Lumberton. We have 
asked the question this quadrennium, "Where's the beef?" So, we have 
created and assisted in the extension of wholistic human need ministries in 
local churches, communities, towns, cities, counties, districts and 
conference-wide, showing that caring is acting. 

In 1984, $82,500 will be granted to Human Need Projects. Call upon 
your District Hunger/Human Need Task Force Chairperson for more 
information or assistance in developing a Human Need Ministry. A video tape 
and hand-out are available to inform, inspire and initiate.

BOARD OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND CAMPUS MINISTRY 

WE COMMEND OUR CONFERENCE COLLEGES TO YOU: Louisburg, College, I'' 
Methodist College, and North Carolina Wesleyan College each offerlr 
individual attention and a Christian environment in which a student mayil 
receive a liberl arts education that prepares him or her to make a positive:! 
contribution to society and be competitive in the job market. We hope youj 
will encourage high school students in your local congregation to give] 
serious consideration to attending one of these three fine colleges. 

THE BLACKBURN SCHOLARSHIP: Students planning to enroll as freshment at 
Methodist College, N.C. Wesleyan College, or Louisburg College may apply by 
April 30 of their senior year in high school for the Blackburn Scholarship 
This is for students with outstanding academic records and a record o 
service in the local congregation. Recipients receive $1,250 a year which 
is renewable for four years if they maintain a "B" average at school. 

CONTRIBUTIONS NEEDED TO BLACKBURN SCHOLARSHIP FUND: Interest rates 
have fallen, and in order to have enough interest income to offer fou 
$1,250 scholarships a year, we need to increase the corpus of the Blackburnji 
Scholarship Fund. Individuals, Sunday School Classes, UMW, UMM, and UMYS I 
groups, or local churches may send contributions to this fund to ourP 
Conference Treasurer, P.O. Box 10955, Raleigh, NC 27605, and mark it " 
"Blackburn Scholarship." 



MERIT AWARDS are granted in each United Methodist related college and 
university. Receipts for these awards come from the United Methodist Day 
Offering. Our conference receives a 10% rebate on funds received for this 
offering: 

RECEIPTS FOR SPECIAL FUNDS BY YEARS 
Methodist Student Day Black College Fund 

1976 $ 4,725.22 $60,917.33 

1977 7,657.02 66,037.13

1982 12,197.74 86,085.74 

1983 9,499.84 85,608.04 

Receipts on the Black College Fund and the United Methodist Student 
Day offering were down in 1983. We need to renew our effort in every local 
church to undergird these in 1984 and 1985. 

Each local church receives an apportionment on the Black College Fund. 
We encourage each local church to accept their asking in full so that the 
12 black colleges traditionally connected with The United Methodist Church 
may have adequate financial support. Bennett College in Greensboro is the 
college in N.C. that benefits from the Black College Fund. 

In 1984, each charge will receive bulletin inserts and offering 
envelopes for the United Methodist Student Day Offering. These will be 
mailed directly fromn Nashville without pastors having to order them. We 
hope that each local church will receive this offering on November 25, 
1984. Thousands of Methodist students attending Methodist related colleges 
and universities receive loans and scholarships as a result of this 
offering; and the higher our offering, the more Merit Awards (of $500) we 
can make in 1985-1986. This year we are making only one merit award but 
that could go to two or three in 1985-86 if we have a generous United 
Methodist Student Day in 1984.

REPORT OF POUCIES CONCERNING 
CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOUC BEVERAGES AT OUR COLLEGES 



In response to the A.D. Byrd, Jr. motion at the 1983 session of the 
N.C. Conference, the Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry at its 
1984 Spring meeting received oral and written reports from our college 
presidents on their policies concerning alcoholic beverages. 

We submit this report to the Conference, and we move to amend the Byrd 
motion from "receive and share with the Annual Conference each year "the 
positiion and enforcement policy regarding the use and possission 
alcoholic beverages on the campus of each of our conference colleges" 
receive annual reports from each of our colleges, and report 
significant change in policy to the Annual Conference." 

BENNETT COLLEGE:The College reserves the right to protect 
character of the Institution and its members. Thus, any undesirable 
behavior resulting from the consumption of alcoholic beverages is 
considered a major violation of trust, and the student shall be subject to 
probation, suspension or expulsion. The College prohibits the possession 
and consumption of alcoholic beverages on campus." - Student Handbook 

27 6 



of 

to 

any 

the 



DUKE UNIVERSITY: No report was received from the University, but it 
was report that the serving of alcoholic beverages in the Divinity School 
is prohibited. 

GREENSBORO COLLEGE; "Greensboro College supports the position of the 
United Methodist Church. . .Behavior in accordance with the positions of the 
United Methodist Church is and will be expected of students at Greensboro 
College at all times. Flagrant disregard of the College's stated position 
will subject offenders to disciplinary action by the College, and up to 
and/or including dismissal." - Student Handbook 

HIGH POINT COLLEGE: "Flagrant disregard of the College's statedj 
position will subject offenders to disciplinary action by the College, up 
to and/or including dismissal. Flagrant disregard will be defined 
as. ..public display, i.e., outside or residence hall room of an alcoholic 
beverage in any form. . .behavior. . .which is disrespectful, destructive, loud 
or obnoxious, threatening or intimidating." - Statement sent by President. 

LOUISBURG COLLEGE: "Louisburg College urges all its members to abstain 
from the use of beverage alcohol. . .Beverage alcohol must not be brought 
into the buildings or on the grounds of the campus. Being under the 
influence of alcohol to such an extent that one's behavior is obviously 
affected is not permitted. . .First violations of the College alcohol policy 
are handled at the discretion of the responsible individuals who notes the 
violation. . .Repeated offenses would lead eventually to suspension from 
Louisburg College." - Student Handbook 

METHODIST COLLEGE: "It is against college policy to possess alcoholic 
beverages. Anyone found with alcohol in his possession will be subject to 
disciplinary action." - Student Handbook 

N.C. WESLEYAN COLLEGE: "The purchase, sale, distribution or display of 
alcoholic beverages is prohibited in any public area on College premises or 
at College sponsored act ivities. . .Public intoxication or the state of being 
drunk is prohibited... - Student Handbook 

A STATEMENT RELEVANT TO ALL CHURCH RELATED COLLEGES: It is the 
responsibility of the Board of Trustees of each college to set policies 
which they feel are in keeping with the tradition and position of The 
United Methodist Church. The Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry, 
meetiong March 1, 1984, reviewed this statement that might be applied on 
any campus related to The United Methodist Church, and which in essence 
summarizes the positions of the church related colleges to which the N.C. 
Annual Conference gives financial support and for whom we have the 
responsibility of electing trustees: 

The use and abuse of alcohol is one of the most sierious problems of 

college-age youth is this generation. 
Your colleges support the position of the United Methodist Church as 

stated in the Social Principles in the 1980 Book of Discipline. 
As Christian educators representing agencies of the North Carolina Annual 

Conference, we publicly communicate to our students disapproval of the 

use and abuse of alcoholic beverages. 
The colleges have a unique and difficult mission to our students. For 

students to mature and move into a world of completes challenges and 

values, they must have the freedom to make responsible decisions and 

learn to accept the rewards or consequences that ensue. 
Our students are encouraged to take responsible positions on the use of 

alcoholic beverages and are confronted when their behavior is 

irresponsible and contrary to the ideals and standards of the 

church-related college. 
In every way possible, we discourage the use of alcoholic beverages. 

Further, there are local, state and federal laws which prohibit use, 

sale, possession, and distribution of marijuana, dangerous drugs and 

dangerous weapons. North Carolina law prohibits the sale, giving, 

purchase, and possession of alcoholic beverages involving any person 

under 19 years of age. The college will not shield students from these 

laws. 

We believe this puts the colleges squarely in the tradition of the 
ministry of shepherding and righteous discipline.

REPORT FROM LOUISBURG COLLEGE TO THE 1984 ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Louisburg College has completed its 197th year as an institution of 
higher learning, and will be recognized in July at the Southeastern 

277 



urisdictional Conference as the oldest two-year denominational college in 
,he United States. We are proud, along with the people of our Conference, 
hat we have had the opportunity these many years to provide quality 
'tducation within an atmosphere that attempts through the total program to 
)reserve and foster the tenets of our Christian faith. 

In the 1983-84 academic year, which again saw full enrollment and 
illed dormitories, we dedicated the new E. Hoover Taft Classroom Building, 
1 beautiful facility that is now providing an excellent learning 
•nvironment for faculty anmd students. We continued to work along with the 
laleigh District United Methodist Men for funding of a new chapel, and we 
lope to be ready for groundbreaking in August when the men have their 
annual district retreat on campus. We are entering Phase Two of our Third 
:entury Campaign to raise an additional $2,000,000.00 to build the new 
Clifton L. Benson Auditorium. Thus, there is and there will be a new fact 
to our traditional, and familiar campus scene. 

The Endowment also continues to be increased, especially with 
'scholarship monies given to provide opportunities for young people to 
'attend school. This is an excellent way for individuals to perpetuate 
their influence, and more and more we see evidence of this choice. In thge 
ipast year these endowments have grown by approximately $100, 00.00. 

The North Carolina Conference and its support as shown in many ways is 
vital to our strength and stability, and we are grateful for all of you who 
make it possible for us to provide the excellence that is in many ways 
beyond the reach of larger institutions. We cannot be all things to all 
people, and we make no such claim, but we rejoice that we can report with 
confidence that Louisburg College does make a real difference in preparing 
many young people not only for transfer to senior colleges and 
universities, but also for entrance into meaningful life that the Church 
would call "good". 

J. Allen Norris, Jr., President 

NORTH CAROLINA WESLEYAN COLLEGE 

Bishop Cannon, Special Guests, Delegates and Friends: I am pleased to 
report that North Carolina Wesleyan College is yet alive and well. Thanks 
be to God and to you for your interest and continued strong support. 

Last fall saw the largest enrollment ever in the brief history of 
Wesleyan. More than 1150 students were enrolled in one or more classes. 
The full-time equivalent enrollment was at 828. This is another record for 
us but we can still accommodate others, because many of our students are 
adults attending night classes in Raleigh, Goldsboro, New Bern and 
Jacksonvi lie. 

Most of our students are enrolled in courses of study leading to a 
career in business, computer information systems, criminal justice or 
teaching. Yet, most of the courses students at Wesleyan must master for 
graduation are the liberal arts courses. English, history, mathematics, 
religion, psychology, and sciences are the basis for all degrees. Our 
objective is to produce broadly educated persons. We reject narrow 
specialization and teach students to think and to honor values and to 
prepare for a lifetime of service. 

We are proud that one of our young business graduates became possibly 
the youngest person in the nation to pass the Certified Public Accountant 
examination at age 18. 

A new major In accounting is being added to the Wesleyan curriculum in 
the fall, along with a degree program in Hotel and Food Services 
Managements. Our academic program is constantly being evaluated and 
strengthened where possible. 

I am pleased to report that your North Carolina Wesleyan College has 
reached a new financial plateau this fiscal year. We have retired all bank 
loans and paid all obligations in full, except notes to the federal 
government. The federal obligations, carrying a 3% interest rate, have 
been refinanced. For the first time in more than 15 years, the College is 
free of all debt except for the government loans. 

In addition, you should know that we continue to spend less each year 
than our income. This practice has caused us to make some sacrifices but 
has provided some security. We now have reserves equal to about 25% of our 
budget to guard against extraordinary expenses or income shortfalls. jThe 
new Leon Russell Chapel was dedicated in February. It is a center of 
worship for the entire campus and a place of beauty. Funds are being 
sought now to convert the old power plant building into a fine arts center 
for the music and drama departments. The new sturcture will contain a 
performing arts theatre. 

278 



Our faculty continues to receive awards and to publish and be invitee 
to give papers. Most of you know that our faculty has often been regardet 
as one of the best at any small college in the nation. 

Wesleyan was moninated for the U.S. News and World Report list of the 
top liberal arts colleges in the United States. While we did not win, wf 
were honored to be nominated. 

Our athletic program has been almost as successful as our academics. 
Wesleyan 's Battling Bishops won Conference championships this year ir 
women's soccer, men's basketball, and baseball. In major sports for the 
past five consecutive seasons, our teams have been rated in the "Top 20, 
Division III" nationwide. Several academic all-Americans have helped us 
achieve this record. 

We were privileged to host the United Methodist Women's Christian 
Personhood Retreat May 18. Whenever our facilities are available, we are 
pleased to welcome group activities on our campus. Please visit your 
College in Rocky Mount whenever you can. You are always welcome. 

S. Bruce Petteway, President 



METHODIST COLLEGE 

Bishop Cannon, members of the Conference, Ladies and Gentlemen. . .1 ' 
beren privileged for the past nine months to serve Methodist College andi 
the North Carolina Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. 

The challenge that I face in this report is to convey a sense of thei 
strengths and stability toward which Methodist College is moving and toi 
highlight the significant accomplishments of this past year without: 
overstating the case or suggesting that the educational promised land hasi 
been achieved. I want you to feel the strength and to share in the' 
confidence about her future that those of us near to this school feel. But 
I want you to know also that many problems remain. We are not yet ready to 
announce that the battle is over and the victory is won. When I tell you 
that Methodist College is in her best financial condition in ten years and 
perhaps in her history you should understand that I am saying that five 
years ago we were two inches from the edge of the cliff; now we are six 
inches from the precipice and we seem to be moving in the right direction. 

I am pleased by a number of positive things that have occurred this 
year in the life of this college. The financial support for Methodist 
College from the Fayetteville community in a campaign led each year by Bill 
Lowdermilk, the Vice President, had this year its largest support in 
history. This campaign has most certainly not reached its potential, but 
the progress under Bill's leadership this year has been remarkable. Our 
gifts and pledges on the first of June were 22% ahead of the corresponding 
date last year. ($156,000 Vs $128,000) 

Under the Director of Alumni Affairs, Mrs. Pat Clayton, the increased 
support from alumni has been exciting. We will possibly triple the number 
of alumni contributions this year compared to last year and we have already 
passed the record number of contributrions from alumni - and the year is 
not over - and received the largest amount of money in our history 
contributed by alumni. Their enthusiastic participation and support has 
been exciting. 

A critical factor for us, of course is enrollment, especially 
residential enrollment. At the present time overall applications for 
entering students are up 18% over the corresponding period last year and, 
in fact, for residential enrollment, the applications are up over 25%. Our 
returning student pre-enrollment is also up about 10%. It is, of course, 
at this juncture too early to make solid predictions about enrollment but I 
am confident that we will have at least a slight increase in our overall 
and residential enrollment for the coming year. Our opening enrollment 
this year was two students above the figure for last year. Our new 
Director of Admissions, Mrs. Charlotte Coheley, is providing energetic and 
creative leadership in this most critical area. To enhance our competitive 
position in enrollment we have introduced two majors, computer science and 
arts management, and two new women's athletic programs, soccer and golf. 
We have expanded our campus work program so that we are now able to provide 
a job for any residential student in good academic standing who desires 
campus employment. This guarantee of an opportunity to work is designed 
with recruitment and retention considerations in mind. 

This year has seen the retirement of two of our senior faculty members 
at the college, Mr. Ambrose in mathematics and Dr. Womack in religion, both 
who have been at the college for a very long time. In fact. Dr. Womack is 
one of our last of those persons know as "patriarchs". . .those people who 

279 



;aught the original classes at Methodist College. 

There will be new faces among us next fall. We are bringing to the 
:ampus this year a young Wesleyan scholar who will serve as a member of the 
Religion Department and as a Chaplain to the campus. Dr. Ken Sutton comes 
^ith impeccable credentials and a good spirit. His presence will bless us 
significantly. We are bringing in a talented mathematician and a good 
teacher to lead our new computer science program. 

Our community was saddened recently by the death of our Academic Dean, 
Dr. Fred Clark, after a brief illness. His strength and character among us 
rfill be missed. He is being replaced by Dr. Lynn Sadler, a noted English 
scholar and experienced administrator. She will arrive on campus on August 
15. 

I am constantly amazed and delighted at the quality of faculty that we 
;have been fortunate to attract and retain. These men and women are not 
only competent scholars and dedicated teachers, they are sensitive and 
concerned human beings. To find so many devout Christians and dedicated 
churchmen on the facualty is a pleasure indeed and it is a privilege to 
work with them. They constantly reaffirm in their personal lives and 
professional work as well as in their relationships with students that 
Methodist College has a mission not only to provide an exciting and 
stimulating intellectual education, but also an education of the heart and 
the spirit. We are concerned not only with what happens in the minds of 
our students but also with the values, the attitudes and the commitments 
that they develop. 

In the important area of our fiscal stewardship, the college will 
operate this year with a balanced budget. This is one of the means by 
which we insure the long-term financial viability of our school. A college 
that can operate with a balanced budget within each year reduces its 
likelihood of having problems over the long-term. However, our balanced 
budget has come with a price. We have achieved this necessary goal by 
deferring some maintenance and providing low faculty salaries. We have 
chipped away slightly at our maintenance needs this year and we did provide 
a small salary increase for our staff but much remains to be done in both 
areas. Overall, however, Methodist College is probably in its best 
financial condition in ten years. Many things have contributed to this 
increased stability - no cash flow borrowing, the Little Estate, increased 
alumni giving, a reversal in the enrollment decline and four most 
successful local campaign. But the primary factor has been the assumption 
of capital support by the Annual Conference. Your support has given us a 
new lease on life. We appreciate not only the fact of your support, but 
the spirit that motivates it. In that spirit, you will be interested to 
know that more than ten ministers from the Fayetteville District 
volunteered recently and worked for three days painting the hallways in one 
of our residence halls. They struck a blow at our deferred maintenance 
needs. 

I want to acknowledge particularly my appreciation to the Vice 
President of the college. Bill Lowdermilk, whose hard work, a deep 
commitment, sensitive Christian spirit and sensible approach to problems 
has been an asset and an inspiration to me. Whatever this college has been 
able to accomplish this - and that has been much - a large part of the 
credit must go to him. In Bill Lowdermilk "I have met an Israelite in whom 
there is no guile. " 

M. Elton Hendricks 
BLACK COLLEGE FCirfD 

Bishop Cannon, Dr. McMillan, Fellow Presidents of the Colleges of the 
North Carolina Conference, Delegates and Friends - I bring sincere and 
appreciative greetings from the administration, trustees and students of 
the twelve colleges which United Methodists support through the Black 
College Fund. I am often asked why there should be "black colleges" now 
that black youth can enroll in any ("white") college of their choice. The 
response Is clear although the person who inquires is not always convinced. 

The reality is that not all blacks who could benefit from a college 
education can attend the college of their choice. It is also true that 
many youth seeking an environment which is compatible with their social and 
cultural background will choose a college where most of the students are 
black. These Institutions which I represent help us to keep an open mind 
about having an inclusive mind in United Methodism and in our society. 

But then I can talk best about why I commit myself to service in a 
black college - Bennett College - an accredited college of 550-600 young 

280 



women, 45 teachers. Our graduates contributed more than $165,000 this 
year, incidating a willingness to reinvest in the future of the college. 
We are operating with a balanced budget. 

Commencement, 198 2 - when a young woman walked across the stage to 
receive her diploma and my handshake, a tired old mother stood up in the 
congregation and shouted, as though in church, "Thank you Jesus. "Who can 
tell what she had gone through to see that day. Another time a graduate 
from the slums of Philadelphia, whom I had never seen smile, who seemed 
always to have a chip on her shoulder, walked up to me and quietly said, 
"Dr. Miller, you don't know how far I have come." 

I have no confusion about why I am in education, and why I cam In thej 
education of blacks. \ 

But let me close on this reminder. The Black College Fund does not 
represent segregation or perpetuation of exclusiveness in the church. lOt 
is the higher form of sound commitment to a ministry of the United 
Methodist Church which has already a proven track record. I thank this 
conference for its past support and urge your continued involvement in this 
very worthy and indispensible mission and ministry. 

My personal thanks go to Dr. McMillan and the Council on Higher 
Education who have taken me into their councils routinely and regularly. 

Isaac H. Miller, Jr. 
President, Bennett College

CAMDLER SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY 
Emoiy University 

Founded to serve church and community nearly 7 years ago, the Candler 
School of Theology at Emory University is an institution of the 
Southeastern Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church. In its 

philosophy and in its objectives Candler is committed to the theological 
education and preparation of men and women for local church ministry. 
Candler has attracted national recognition as one of the country's leading 
seminaries in this area. Through the dedication of its distinguished 
faculty, its excellent facilities, and its comprehensive resources, Candler 
is endeavoring to address the needs of the United Methodist Church for an 
effective ministry. 

Again this year, Candler's total enrollment increased, bringing the 
number of students matriculated to 671, our largest ever. While students 
come from across the nation and around the world and represent more than 
thirty denominations, the great majority (80%) come from and return to 
serve United Methodist churches in the Southeast. 

Reflective of the church itself, Candler's student body included 154 
women and 64 members of minority groups. While the majority seek admission 
to the Master of Divinity program, others enroll in one of our other degree 
programs: the Master of Theological Studies; the Doctor of Divinity;" or the 
Doctor of Sacred Theology in Pastoral Care. Recently, Candler's curriculum 
was cited by the Association of Theological Schools for its academic and 
clinical excellence. 

This year we were pleased to appoint an additional faculty member in 
Sociology of Religion and are currently searching for a person to fill a 
chair in Church Administration and Leadership. 

This year also marked the launching of the Center for Servant 

281 



;>adership. Under the direction of Bennett J. Sims, the program seeks to 
iirich the lives of executive men and women in business, industry, public 
krvice, the professions and religious institutions and to provide these 
anagers with a healthty religious perspective that can inform 
scision-making. The program is designed to help leaders examine their 
ales in light of the moral and spiritual understanding of their work and 
o assist them in a refreshing assessment of their vocation. 

Candler had the honor of hosting two major scholarly events this past 
ear. The first was the symposium on the future of Methodist Theology, 
his week-long event din August, 1983, generated significant discussion 
mong 123 Wesleyan scholars from across the country who 

ttended — discussion that will no doubt continue. 

The second event was a major international symposium on the 
ontribution of Martin Luther to the modern world. This symposium was held 
n the occasion of Luther's 500th birthday and brought together scholars 
rem Germany and the United States. 

Candler today stands at the frontier of ministerial education. Your 

■onference and your local churches have and continue to play a critical 
ole in enabling us to succeed at our task. Specifically, through your 

upport of the Ministerial Education Fund, Candler receives more than 30 

lercenmt of its annual income. Without this financial assistance our 

commitment to excellence in preparing men and women for local church 

ninistry would suffer greatly. 

We thank you for your past support and your continued assistance. 

Office of the Dean 



DUKE DIVIMITY SCHOOL 

Among the many resources which support Duke's commitment to excellence 
in theological education, none is more important than the strong reputation 
which the Divinity School continues to enjoy as a school of the church. We 
look on that reputation as a sacred trust which required boldness and 
Imagination if the preparation for ministry which we offer our students is 
to be equal to the challenges of these perplexing times. 

In the 57 years since the founding of the Divinity School, more than 
3,000 graduates have gone forth to lead the church in thousands of 
congregations around the globe. We are glad to take this opportunity to 
DUtline some recent developments which insure that the Divinity School's 
ministry in the service of the church will not only continue, but excell. 

ENROLLMENT PROFILE: The Divinity School's reputation for academic 
excellence in the service of the church and its ministry continues to grow, 
as evidenced by the strength and diversity of our student body. With the 
start of the Fall 1983 semester, the Divinity School enrolled 364 students 
in its professional degree programs (M.Div. , M.R.E., and Th.M.) and an 
additional 60 students in the M. A. /Ph.D. program. Our student body has 
arawn men and women from 192 undergraduate schools, 22 denominations and 33 
states. Women constitute 30% of the total enrollment, and black students 
constitute 10%. This year's entering class had a mean Grade Point Average 
(GPA) of 3.15 and a median GPA of 3.13. At a time when many schools are 
aeing forced to lower their entrance requirements, the Divinity School 
continues to maintain its historical commitment to high standards. The 
quality of our student body has never been higher. 

ALUMNI SUPPORT: While the accomplishments of its distinguished faculty 
and scholars, and an aggresive international exchange program earn it 
Increasing prominence in American theological education and the ecumenical 
rforld, the Divinity School continues to enjoy strong regional, 
denominational and alumni support as well. Almost three-quarters of the 
student body is United Methodist (168) and 48.5% (177) are from North 
:arolina. 

Alumni participation is the highest in the University, as evidenced by 
bhe more than 800 alumni area pastors and friends who travelled to Duke in 
early November for the 1983 Divinity School Convocation, some from as far 
away as Oregon, New Mexico and Arizona. Public lectures on Methodism in 
^merica by Albert Outler, Emeritus Professor of Theology at Southern 
»1ethodist University, and the influence of Martin Luther by Martin E. 
»1arty, Fairfax M. Cone Distinguished Service Professor of the History of 
«1odern Christianity at the University of Chicago highlighted this three-day 
event, which also featured a wide variety of continuing education courses 
offered in conjunction with the N.C. Pastor's School. Presented as part of 
the continuing eduation program of the Divinity School under the direction 
of Dr. McMurry S. Richey this year's Convocation drew the largest 

28 2 



attendance in the history of this annual, three-day event. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION; After 30 years of service to the Divinity School 
as both Professor of Theology and Christian Nurture, and, most recently, as. 
Interim Director of Continuing Education, Dr. Richey retired at thij 
conclusion of the Spring semester. The Rev. W. Joseph Mann of Raleigl|L|i 
became Director of Continuing Education on June 1. 

As Director of Continuing Education, Mann will have charge of ai: 
non-degree educational programs offered at the Divinity School. In additior" 
to directing the annual Divinity School Convocation and Course of Stud^ 
School, Mann will also coordinate all off-campus education programs anc 
special institutes, as well as the Divinity School's expandinc 
international program. 

A member of the N.C. Conference since 1974, Mann has served as 
Director of the Wesley Foundation and Campus Minister at N.C. Statt 
University since 1975. His outstand work on the Raleigh campus, and his 
Imaginative approach to both the academic and ecclesiastical world, as 
witnessed by the dual appointments he now holds as of both the N.C. 
Humanities Endowment (for the state-based program of the National Endowment 
for the Humanities) and the Communications Committee of the N.C. Council of 
Churches. He also serves as Secretary for the State Commission on Campus 
Ministry and as a member of the Conference Council on Ministries. 

No stranger to Duke, Mann has served on the faculty of the annual 
Course of Study School held each summer at the Divinity School. A graduate 
of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mann holds the B.D. and 
S.T.M. degrees from Yale University Divinity School. His appointment] 
concludes a year-long search process which involved a field of almost a 
hundred candidates, six of which were selected for final Interviews. 

A native North Carolinian, Joseph Mann began his ministry in th< 
parish and has initiated a number of extremely creative continuing 
education programs for pastors during his years at N.C. State. His has been 
an aggressive, adventurous ministry in Raleigh, and he has proved himself 
remarkable adept at bridging the often-separated communities of industry, 
academia and the church. Conversations with leaders within and without th( 
Methodist Church have convinced us that Joseph Mann's sensitivities, skills 
and expoerience make him the best choice for the position. We are 
tremendously lucky to have gotten him. 

DEVELOPMENT: Last year's Annual Fund Campaign saw the Divinity School 
lead the university in alumni participation in development activities, with 
51% of the alumni contributing. And the 1983-84 Annual Fund Campaign got 
off to an even stronger start this past fall, with a Reunion Class Telethon 
which drew pledges from 72% of the alumni contacted during the two-day 
effort. 

Throughout the year the Divinity School development program continued 
to advance in several areas. Another highly successful telethon in early 
February Involved 48 volunteers - Including 15 members of the faculty, 
students and alumni - and direct alumni soliciation by class agents is 
scheduled for April. Annual Fund pledges now total approximately $65,000 
from more than 1200 donors. 

A new scholarship fund was established in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Wilson 
0. Weldon to underwrite education for parish ministry in recognition of the 
ministerial gifts which the Greensboro minister has exercised in a lifetime 
of service to the church. And thanks to the generous support of the Arthur 
Vinlng Davis Foundations, the Divinity School is about to begin an 
ambitious project aimed at improving the pastoral care of dying children 
and their families. The three-year effort was made possible by a $60,000 
grant from the Florida philanthropic organization. 

ADMINISTRATION: Acting at the request of Dean Dennis M. Campbell, Duke 
University President Terry established a Board of Visitors for the Divinity 
School, and appointed 22 church leaders, alumni and professional educators 
to serve the Dean and the School in an advisory capacity. The newly 
constituted board has met twice this year under the direction of its 
chairman, James T. Tanner, President of Tanner Companies, Inc. 
(Ruitherf ordton, NC). Others members Include the Rev. Joseph B. Bethea 
(Raleigh, NC) , Dr. J. Seaborn Blair, Jr. (Wallace, NC) , Robert W. Bradshaw, 
Jr. (CHarlotte, NC), Dr. Merrimon Cunlnggim (Winston-Salem, NC), Randolph 
R. Few (Durham, NC), the Rev. Albert F. Fisher (Durham, NC), the Rev. Owen 
Fitzgerald (Raleigh, NC), and Margaret Harvey (Klnston, NC). 

Also the Rev. Kara Hurley (Oak Ridge, NC) , Sarah Jordan, (Mt. Gllead, 
NC), Mary Alice Massey (Jacksonville, Fla), the Rev. Charles Mercer 
(Durham, NC), the Rev. William K. Quick (Detroit, Mich.), Leonard 
Richardson (Asheboro, NC), the Reb. George P. Robinson (Winston-Salem, NC), 
Norwood Robinson (Winston-Salem, NC) , Beverly Small (Elizabeth City, NC) , 
the Rev. Thomas B. Stockton (High Point, NC) , Ted B. Summer, Jr. 
(Charlotte, NC) , A. Morris Williams, Jr. (Villanova, Pa.), and Sherrill

illiams (Newton Grove, NC). 

COMMUNICATIONS: Since late January, the Divinity School has been 
ublishing The Review of Books and Religion, a monthly periodical dedicated 
o monitoring the broad range of American religious thought and 
cholarship. 

Despite signs that the role of religion in American life is strong and 
rowing stronger. Dean Campbell explained in the January issue as the new 
ublished of The Review of Books and Religion , media coverage of the 
ubject suggests that the national opinion leaders who make up what Daniel 
ell has called "the overculture" are blind to religion's influence in the 
'orld today, and ignorant of its power to shape politics, economics and 
ulture, both at home and abroad. 

"It is this growing distance between the dominant intellectual culture 
nd society at large which explains why key issues of religious concern are 
)ften either ignored or trivialized by secular media predisposed to view 
;he role of religion in the affairs of this world with hostility, 
suspicion, or indifference." 

Modeled after the highly successful New York Review of Books , the 
review was started in 1971 to correct thii deficiency by monitoring 
religious publishing in America and selecting from the more than 2,00 new 
:itles published annually those books deemed most worthy of review and 
:omment. For more than a decade, its broad ecunemical focus has made it 
jnique in its field. It is the only nationally-circulated publication 
offering timely and thorough coverage of the broad range of American 
religious thought and scholarship - Protestant, Catholic and Jewish, 
conservative and liberal, popular and scholarly. 

Duke's plans for future issues of The Review of Books and Religion 
Hnclude timely reviews of current books, critical essays on the larger 
iissues which they help raise, provocative interviews with key figures in 
(the religious, scholarly and publishing communities, and a host of new 
[features designed to broaden public awareness of the relevance of the 
nation's principal religious resources to the perplexing problems of these 
difficult times. 

We are convinced that a revitalized Review can serve as a valuable aid 
to the continuing education of lay and clerical leaders in all the 
churches, a lively medium of exchange amont 'the makers of ideas', and a 
significant tool for ecclesiastical and institutional librarians and other 
scholars, and we intend to deliver nothing less in the months ahead. 

For more information about these or any of our programs, please 
contact The Divinity School, Duke University, Durham, NC 27706, (919) 
684-3234.

THE DUKE ENDOWMENT 
REPORT TO THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

The Indenture creating The Duke Endowment was signed by Mr. James B. 
Duke on December 11, 1924, as a charitable trust "...to make provision in 
some measure for the needs of mankind along physical, mental and spiritual 
lines..." In creating the Duke Endowment, Mr. Duke specified the 
beneficiaries of the charitable trust as not-for-profit hospitals and child 
care institutions in North and South Carolina, rural United Methodist 
churches in the two North Carolina Annual Conferences of the United 
Methodist Church, together with retired ministers and widows and children 
of deceased ministers of those conferences, and four educational 
institutions - Duke University, Davidson College, Furman University and 
Johnson C. Smith University. 

Mr. Duke's concern for rural United Methodist congregations, ministers 
and their families was an outgrowth of his early personal experience in the 
Methodist Church in rural Durham County. He knew the importance of the 
circuit riding Methodist preachers to the spiritual life of his family and 
neighbors. The Duke Endowment support of rural United Methodist churches 
continues to be fulfilled in the manner specified by Mr. Duke, namely, 
grants for rural church building programs, grants to maintain and operate 
rural churches, and annual to assist retired ministers and dependents of 
deceased ministers. 

Under the Building Rural Churches Program the Trustees of The Duke 
Endowment continue to support churches not only through grants for building 
programs but through consultation on the part of the staff of the Rural 
Church Division in a never ceasing commitment for excellence in church 
buildings in the two North Carolina Annual Conferences.lt is safe to say 
that the Rural Church Program of The Duke Endowment is unique and that 

28 4 



rural United Methodist churches in North Carolina have an opportunity £<■> 
quality buildings not known elsewhere. I 

In the last year the Trustees of The Duke Endowment have established : 
new support for churches which have been struck by some catastrophe. TjM 

late Robert McCormack, who served many years as chairman of the Rurali 
Church Committee of The Duke Endowment Trustees, had a great concern th«|lii 
churches struck by catastrophe, because of their poor circumstances, woul't 
be unable to rebuild promptly and carry on their mission in thel 
particular area. With that concern, a resolution was drafted by th 
Trustees that an amount up to $20,000 could be made available to a churc 
to assist immediately after the destruction in the rebuilding processji 
This policy is another example of The Duke Endowment Trustees' desire t! 
meet the needs of the beneficiaries. i, 

The Maintaining and Operating Rural Churches Program continues it^ 
support in a number of areas. Grants are made available for parisi 

development, for continuing education for pastors, for student interns ani 
a variety of other special projects. In the past year, at the request o 
Bishop L. Scott Allen of the Western North Carolina Annual Conference, th 
Trustees have made a grant to assist the Western North Carolina Conferenc 
in a new position - Director of Church Extension and Improvement Services 
The purpose of this new position is to make available a person to he! 
small churches supervise construction projects. 

Recognizing the constant rise in the cost of living, the Trustees hav 
expressed their concern about the needs of the retired ministers an 
dependents of deceased clergy. In an effort to address these needs, th( 
Trustees historically have increased the award per Service Year as fundi 
permitted. 

Finally, the Trustees of The Duke Endowment continue to look for ne\ 
and innovative ways to increase the quality of life in Mr. Duke's nativt 
area.

i CHAPLAIN'S REPORT 

Through the years the North Carolina Conference of the United 
■(.Jethodist Church has introduced the Institutional Chaplains, both members 
)f this conference and visitors from other conferences here present by 
(Sking each of the chaplains to stand and give his name, where he is 
serving his parish and/or what the conference might be. Then in a short 
iynopsis form, someone (in the past two years that someone has been me) has 
:ried to explain to you that we, too, are still in the ministry and, in 
fact, we have never left It, contrary to the beliefs of some. 

In a discussion with many of the chaplains that were present here last 
year, we all agreed that the time is right for the format of the 
presentation of chaplains at conference to change and in these few minutes 
that we have together we hope that we can find a way to see an effective 
change in the procedure starting today. We hope that the coming years will 
bring about even more change as far as your knowledge of what the 
chaplain's ministry really is. 

Today I want to give you a brief overview of what the chaplain's role 
really is and try to show you just what your brothers and sisters are doing 
in their frontline ministry, in the name of Jesus Christ. 

The United Methodist Church sends its chaplains into many varied kinds 

of ministries around the world. They are sent into prisons for the adult 

and for the youth. They are sent into the environment of industry. Our 

Methodist Retirement Centers and Homes have chaplains in them. The military 

services - Army, Navy, Air Force, National Guard, and Reserves - all have 

chaplains assigned to them. There are United Methodist sponsored hospitals 

f and community hospitals where our chaplains are ministering. The VA System 

I of Medical Centers has the largest Hospital Chaplain Service in the world 

! and the United Methodist Church has over 100 chaplains serving in those 

I medical centers. I would like to share with you a quick overview of what 

the ministry for these chaplains is like. 

Let us first consider the prison chaplaincy. The chaplain who faces 
his parishioners in a prison setting, whether for adults or youths, will be 
facing more hostility in one day than most of us see in a lifetime of 
trying to raise the local church budget. There are not only inmates that 
are there for the first time, there are returnees. There is violence, 
overcrowding, isolation, very little hope, intense mood swings, bigotry, 
and hostility. 

The chaplain in this situation does what we have all been called to 
do, MINISTERS. He preaches, teaches, baptizes, uses his training and the 
Bible to care for those parishioners and their families that have been 
entrusted to him for emotional and spiritual care. 

The questions ring out here, "Is your local church willing to become 
involved with inmates at an institution near them?" and, "Why would anyone 
want to go into this kind of ministry?" 

To me the industrial Chaplain is a new breed of minister and I am sure 
that you feel the same way, but if I ask myself why such a ministry is 
needed, the answer is so simple and it makes a great deal of sense to me. 
In our nation we spend more time and energy at our jobs each day than at 
any other single thing we do, and because this is true the cross of Christ 
should be there. 

The main aspect of the chaplain's role in the industrial ministry is 
to deal with the personal problems that confront the workers in his or her 
parish. So the bulk of the industrial chaplain's work is counseling and 
dealing with the people that work in his or her parish. 

Our church has established a number of fine retirement centers and 
homes. Into these centers the church often sends chaplains to minister to 
the needs of those who have made the centers their home. 

The majority of the work for the chaplains involved in this ministry 
revolves around dealing with people that are in very basic grief 
situations. These people, many of whom are retired, have a great many 

286 



losses under their belts. In many of these cases the people living in tV 
homes have lost their significant other, their homes, their community'' 
their possessions, and to some extent, their health. Though they live in 
nice place with good surroundings it cannot replace all that they hav^f? 
given up, so along with all of this loss, they also have to face lonelinea 
and grief. 

Death is also very prominent in a situation like this one. This 1 
true merely because of the age of the persons involved. So the chaplain i 
this situation brings to his parishioners the love of Christ as he or sh 
supports those who are in the autumn of their lives. 

The military chaplain's role is somewhat of a moral contradiction 
the eyes of some people. War does not run hand-in-hand with the teaching 
of Jesus Christ. The military chaplain's role is not to justify war, bu 
rather to minister to military personnel in an emotional, as well a 
spiritual, manner. 

There is church school, choir practices, bible study groups, and yes 
there is war. These parishioners have been uprooted from their familie 
and home to serve in the military and the church must not fail to rise t 
the occasion of serving their spiritual and emotional needs. The militai 
chaplain became an official member of the military team in 1776 by an ac 
of Congress. Today there are in excess of 420 military chaplains who at 
United Methodist serving in either the Army Air Force or Navy. 

There are Methodist hospitals, community and state hospitals where th 
Methodist Church has for years sponsored chaplains for a ministry. Thes 

hospitals have patients that are either physically ill or mentally ill, s 
there is a great deal of variation in the type of patients that thes 
chaplains have to deal with. The basic role for these chaplains, like tli 
others we have mentioned, is one of support. It is a ministry that dea] 
not only with patients in the hospital, but also with the patient's familj 
It is a sacramental as well as a spiritual and emotional ministry. Ther 

are bible studies, worship services, counseling, visits to the bedside ov 
patients getting better and patients who are dying. This is a very definit( 
"hands on" ministry. 

The VA Medical System has 172 Medical Centers and Hospitals. In thest 
are anywhere from 2 to 16 chaplains depending on the number of hospitals 
beds. The chaplain in the VA medical center might find his or her role 
varying from dealing with a patient with orthopedic problems who will ont 
day walk out of the hospital to dealing with a patient from a Spinal Core 
Injury Unit who will never walk again. He or she might be working with a 
patient who is terminally ill. These chaplains deal with their parishioners 
as all the other chaplains in our institutions do and as you do and that is 
they baptize, listen, lay on hands, pray with them, counsel patients anc 
family, greet death, and bury their dead. They work with drug and alcohol 
patients and they are an intricate part of the HEALING TEAM. I mention the 
Healing Team because I want you as conference members to know that youi 
fellow ministers who are called chaplains where they work, are indeed 
healers as you are. That level of competence depends a great deal on ho> 
close you and I are to the one that commissioned us to go into all the 
world. 

In each of the aforementioned areas, I am sure that there are times 
when those areas seem less than palatable to those not involved in them, 
and I suppose at times not palpatable even to those that are involved ir 
them, and one might wonder just why anyone would go into that kind of work. 
The answer seems simple from where I stand when I remember the words that I 
alluded to just seconds ago, "Go ye into all the world." He would go there, 
why shouldn't we? 

You see there is no place where the teachings of Jesus Christ should 
not be heard and the Love of God should not be felt. One of our Methodist 
Bishops said, "There Is no withdrawal from the ministry of Jesus Christ." 

As a chaplain, our parishioners have the right, as do those in you 
local church, to know that "Nothing can separate them from the love of 
God." 

You have our prayers and what we need from you are yours.

BOARD OF HEALTH AND WELFARE MINISTRIES 

_ ort from the Conference Board of Trustees answering the Braswell motion 
'i^ought before the Conference for study in 1983: 

RESOLUTION (from action of the Conference Council on Ministries) 
Samuel D. McMillan, Jr. moved, Charles M. Smith seconded, that 'the 
inference Council on Ministries reaffirm the action of the regular session 

"f the 1979 Annual Conference, by recommending to: the Conference Board of 
rustees, the Board of Trustees of the Methodist Home for Children, the 

^oard of Health and Welfare Ministries, the Cabinet, and the N.C. Annual 
onference — that the Board of Trustees of the Methodist Home for Children 

le authorized and encouraged to proceed with plans to sell or lease lots 22 
hrough 32 at 1001 Glenwood Avenue, so that revenues from this sale or 
ease may be made available to carry out the eight point program approved 

)y the 1978 special sesison of Annual Conference.' There was a period of 

Jiscussion of this substitute motion after which the vote was 25 For, 13 

vgainst. The substitute motion was APPROVED. The substitute motion became 

:he main motion and was APPROVED." 



METHODIST HOME FOR CHILDREN 

In 1979 the Methodist Home for Children began a major transition. This 
:ransition was indicated by careful study in the late 70's by our Board of 
Trustees and the Board of Health and Welfare resulting in the action of 
Annual Conference in 1978 and 1979. The changing need in child care can 
;t be illustrated by two scenarios. 

1. In the 1920's consider a typical family being the husband, wife and six 
children. The husband dies. He leaves no insurance. There are no social 
security survivor's benefits. The wife has no job and has never worked 
outside the home. In the midst of grief, the widow and her community 
must plan for the future. Her brother takes one child, her sister-in-law 
takes another, she will keep the baby. The community is impoverished. 
What will happen to the other three? 

That's when the pastor called A.S. Barnes. The Methodist Orphanage 
received those three children and provided a home through high school. 
This model of custodial care prevailed for many years and we did it 
well. 

2. Today the typical family is a husband, wife and two children. The 
husband dies. He leaves $60,000 insurance. Social Security Survivors 
benefits are significant. When the couple were first married they 
decided she would work outside the home and while the decision has 
brought some stress, she now has a good job. In the midst of her grief, 
the widow decides that she will continue to maintain a home for her 10 
year old daughter and 13 year old son. Then one day at work the police 
call to say that they have the 13 year old in custody and she better 
come down. She rushes down - a tightening in her stomach. He was picked 
up with a group in a stolen car. They were skipping school and he was in 
the group, riding in the back seat. The police give him a lecture and do 
not charge him. She takes him home furious and gives him straight talk. 
"How can you do this to me?" 

A few months later the phone rings at 2:00 a.m. This time the police 
have him on breaking and entering. By now her stomach has an ulcer. She 
is at her wits end. ..that's when the pastor, or the juvenile court 
counselor, or social worker calls the Methodist Home for Children. 

There are one thousand variations on this scenario. Many children are 
growing up in single parent homes. The pressures outside the family and 
within the family are great and there are many troubled children out there. 
We offer hope in time of trouble. 

We can offer hope to troubled children, youth and families because 
Christ is at the heart of this ministry. Jesus gives us eyes to see the 
worth of every person as precious in the sight of God. For this reason, we 
reach out to minister to children and youth no matter who they are, where 
they are from, or how severe their difficulty. If we can meet the specific 
need, we will do so. In so doing, we strive to be faithful to the Gospel of 
our Lord. 

We approach our ministry to children, youth and families the three 
ways: Family Life Service - designed to counsel with families in crisis in 
their own homes so as to avoid disruption and to provide family life 
education to churches and other groups. Foster Family Services - providing 
individual placement of children and youth in well trained foster homes. 

288 



Higher Education - assisting youth who have been in our program to obtalt 
career education. Residential Services - providing residential treatment t< 
troubled youth. ;| 

The major impact of the transition has been seen in ResidentlajJ 
Services. We are moving from campus-based care to community-based care for' 
children and youth. In community-based care we locate our youth homes near 
the natural family of the children we serve. We use the Teaching Family 
Model of child care in working with these children. This plan of care is a 
carefully worked out treatment program for behaviorally disturbed boys and 
girls. Our objective is, in a period of 12 to 18 months, to successfully 
prepare a child for permanent placement in his/her natural home. We are 
pleased that this approach is proving to be successful. 

We are making progress. 1983 statistics show a slight increase over 
1982, indicating that we are coming out of the low point of services in 
this transition. These statistics are drawn from the official, audited 
report of the Duke Endowment, Division of Child Care: 

198 2 198 3 
Total children and youth served 106 117 

Total adults served 120 161 

Total families served 88 102 

Number of youth in residence 56 49 

Number of children and youth in foster care 16 19 
Number of children and youth in counseling 30 39 

Number of youth helped in higher education 12 10 

The North Carolina Annual Conference, in authorizing the transition in 
1979, acknowledged that this move is costly and authorized the Home to 
"sell, lease or otherwise develop" the Raleigh campus so as to generate 
funds to underwrite the transition. Your board of trustees is doing this' 
very carefully with good success. To date we have net proceeds from the 
sale of the property totaling $4,179,191. 

Some of this money is being used to obtain new community-based youth 
home property. The earnings from these funds along with earnings from our 
general endowment are an important part of our income for operations. At 
present there are 9.42 acres remaining available for sale. The Conference 
Council on Ministries is recommending to Annual Conference that the Home 
proceed with the sale of this property in order that full transition may be 
accomplished. 

PRESENT STATUS AND PROJECTIONS on the transitions: 
1984 

FAMILY LIFE - Place a family life worker in the northwest quadrant of the 
Annual Conference in addition to the one in the northeast. 
FOSTER CARE - Recruiting foster families from United Methodist Churches 
in Raleigh and Durham Districts. 
RESIDENTIAL SERVICES - Capacity 34. Community based homes in east Raleigh, 
Fremont and Edenton. Three campus-based homes moved: one to Raleigh 
District, one to Fayettevllle District, one to Durham District. 
1985 

RESIDENTIAL SERVICES - Capacity 46. Two new youth homes. Possible 
placement: one in Rockingham District and one in the Wilmington District. 
FAMILY LIFE - Two new Family Life Worker positions; one in the southeast 
quadrant and the other in the southwest quadrant. 
1986 

RESIDENTIAL SERVICES - Capacity approximately 58. Two new youth homes: 
one located west and one in the center of the Coastal Plain. 

By the end of 1986 our expectation is to have recovered from the 
transition. At that point in our history our projected annual admission 
into care will be larger than at any time in the 86 years of the life of 
the Home. We will never have as many children in custody at any one time as 
we did the Orphanage days, but we will be helping more individual children 
and youth per year than ever before. 

This year saw the retirement of Albert Goldfinch, Business Manager of 
the Home for 18 years. Brother Goldfinch made a lasting contribution to 
this ministry. We are pleased to acknowledge to the annual Conference his 
great work among us. 

In conclusion, we of the staff of the Home express to you our 
confidence in this ministry we re doing. We are pleased to share with you 
our sense of momentum. We want to acknowledge the importance of our 
relationship to this Annual Conference. This is the most crucial time in 
the history of the Home. Your continuing support is Invaluable as we move 
forward in this ministry.

METHODIST RETIREMENT HOME 

The year 1983 was a banner year financially for the Methodist 
, Ftirement Homes, Inc. We were able to lower our operating deficit from 
iA9,8S0 in 1982 to $159,906 in 1983. Our operating results for the year 
\re the best in recent history. 

In November of last year, Mr. Richard Dawson, a resident of 
(eenville, N.C. was secured on a full time basis to head up the campaign 
:r the proposed Greenville Retirement Home. Richard came to us with an 
(cellent background in the area of fund raising. Many positive things have 
Ippened and are happening since Richard came on board. A finance committee 
insisting of two co-chairmen and 12 other persons from Greenville has been 
)rmed to solicit contributions for the proposed retirement home. Once the 
impaign is underway in Greenville, the same structure will be set up in 
her outlying communities. Our dream is to break ground for our new home 
lis year. 

The benevolent work for the retirement home for 1983 amounted to over 
\20,000. To help offset this, we received $300,000 from the Conference. In 
idition, our Supplementary Assistance Fund now has an excess of $200,000. 
le income from this fund is designated for benevolent work. 

The Auxiliary is becoming more involved in the help and caring of 
ssidents and patients in our Homes. We envision that within a few years, 
18 Auxiliary will have a tremendous impact on our Homes. 

The future holds the promise of continued expansion for the Homes. At 
nis date, we have tentative plans to expand the apartment facilities at 
esley Pines, and we are in the early planning stages for developing an 
dditional independent living facility at the Durham Home. 

Our financial condition indicates that sound business practices are 
eing carried out in a Christian and caring manner. With continued careful 
lanning and support of United Methodists and other friends of the Home, 
md with current gifts, our service will continue to provide the kind of 
itmosphere and ministry which is a part of the Homes' heritage. 

W. Don Penley, Executive Director 



GOLDEN CROSS REPORT 

Golden Cross is part of the Outreach Ministries of our conference, 
frhis program gives financial assistance to United Methodist laypersons who 
are in need because of medical expenses which are beyond their ability to 
pay. It is a concrete way we fulfill our Lord's directive to care for the 
sick and needy in His name. 

During 1983, 31 people, representing every district in our conference 
received assistance in the amount of $13,756.38. In addition, we 
contributed $5,500.00 to the chaplain program at Duke Medical Center and 
$2,250.00 to the Good Shepherd Home at Lake Waccamaw. 

If you know of someone that needs help with their medical expense, ask 
your pastor to fill out an application and send it to the district health 
and welfare chairperson. 

The response of a typical recipient: "My husband has been unable to 
work for 10 years because of a stroke. You will never know what the 
approval of my request for medical expense for my husband meant to us. I am 
very active in our local United Methodist Church. I will never be able to 
thank you and the Golden Cross Fund enough. I am aware that this comes from 
ray fellow Christians in the United Methodist Church. Thanks again, and may 
God bless you all." 

On behalf of all the Golden Cross recipients, I thank you, the people 
of the North Carolina Conference. You can be proud of the part you have in 
this vital ministry of the church.

social issues and concerns," the Board presents at this Annual Conference d 
major position paper and one resolution. In both instances the paper an 
the resolution have been written and reviewed by the Board and come witl 
its endorsement. The Position Paper presented to the 1984 Annual Conferenc 
is entitled: Conflict Resolution. The Resolution brought is entitled: Us 
of Methodist Children's Home Property. 

R. Bruce Pate, Chairpersor 
POSITION PAPER ON CONFUCT RESOLUTION 

Introduction 

The Christian's dilemna surrounding the resolution of conflict is as 
old as the faith itself. From the earliest period of Christian martyrdom 
through the Crusades to today's anti-nuclear war demonstrations the issue 
has remained: how does a Christian acceptable resolve conflicts? The 
Christian response throughout history has fluctuated between the extremes 
of insurrection and passivism. 

The Biblical alternative is neither violence nor passive 
non-resistance. Our knowledge of the historical Jesus reveals one who was 
intent on overcoming evil and transforming relationships. Therefore, 
Christians believe in the theology of reconciliation, reflected in Jesus' 
Sermon on the Mount. 

"...Do not resist one who is evil. But if anyone strikes you on the 
right cheeck, turn to him the other also; and if anyone would sue you and 
take your coat, let him have your cloak as well; and if anyone forces you 
to go one mile, go with him two miles... 

"Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you so that you 
may be sons of your Father who is in Heaven..." 

The Apostle Paul sums up this ethic of Jesus by writing to the Roman 
Christians: "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." 

The alternative presented by Jesus is one of reconciling love, labeled 
by some as "non-violent resistance" and by others as "de-host il ization. " 

291 



igardless of the terms used, the Christian's mandate is to engage in 
iconciling love which has the power to transform, "to overcome evil with 
rod." 

Walking the second mile, the Christian claims the opportunity to 
' ansform a relationship. Amos asks the question: "Can two walk together, 

cept they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3KJV) The act of turning a compulsory 

quirement into voluntary service introduces the possibility that an enemy 

n become a companion. 

When conflict is unavoidable, the cross is the central paradigm for 

e Christian faith. Jesus instructed all who would come after him to deny 
4emselves and take up their cross and follow him (Matthew 16:24) As 
jristians accept the cross, they join in the struggle against evil, 
ftnfronting violence with reconciling love. Violence which remains 
itransformed, they bear themselves. Thus, cross-bearing becomes the 
lactment of reconciling love. 

Christians can carry the cross of untransf ormed violence because they 
low the cross does not have the final word. The will of God will 
Itimately reign and justice will become a reality. The time will yet come 
len God will make all things new "and there shall be no more death, 
either sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any pain; for the former 
Tings are passed away" (Revelation 21 :4KJV) . Our final hope lies in this 
Itimate conquest of evil. 

Applying reconciling love in situations on conflict is often difficult 
nd unclear. Christians cannot ignore the existence of violence in their 
orld. Violent acts are committed daily. But the challenge for Christians - 
t home, in their communities, in state and national affairs, and in the 
orld - is to minimize violence while seeking maximum reconciliation 
hrough the redeeming love of Christ. 

AMILY CONFLICTS: 

Conflict is an integral part of modern life, including conflict among 
amily members. Probably a main source of harsh conflict in families 
esults from the lack of a family consensus regarding the family's 
dentity and its mission in life. Other conflict, often resulting in the 
ibuse of spouse or children, can be caused not only by disagreements but 
ilso by frustration, anger, or the desire to control someone else. These 
sometimes subtle causes of conflict can be expressed in violent or 
ion-violent ways. 

The tendency of violence to be self-perpetuating must not be 
underestimated. A high proportion of persons committing violent crimes were 
abused, or saw their mothers abused as children. Battering spouses as well 
battered spouses who remain in the marriage usually were reared in families 
with violent histories. Prostitutes were frequently victims of 
incest, another category of child abuse. To regard these family conflicts 
as a private matter is to shut our eyes to the tremendous social cost. 

The Durham-Orange Coalition for Battered Women, for example, served 
476 women in the two counties in 1982-83. The coalition estimates that 
1,000 cases of assault on a female (cases in which no weapon was involved) 
were brought before the Durham County Court System in 1982-83. The FBI 
estimates that only one in ten women report abuse. If this is true, Durham 
County alone would have had 10,000 cases of wife abuse in 1982-83. In at 
least 90 per cent of these cases the conflict is unresolved and likely to 
lead to further abuse. Of the cases brought to court, 80 to 85 per cent 
involve families with children. 

Abuse of elderly family members has surfaced in recent years. 
Conflicts between generations occur in either direction; the same pattern 
of violence toward the weaker party in a conflict brings abuse of an aging 
parent as well as abuse of a defenseless child. 

The Bible clearly teaches loving concern for each other and mutual 
respect among family members. Coercion and violence have no place in the 
relationship. The church has often failed to act as advocate for victims of 
family violence or incest. Many in the church have viewed family conflict 
and violence as a regrettable but necessary price to be paid for protecting 
the family. But the Christian theology of reconciliation can bring to even 
the most troubled families the love of Christ, and the reconciliation of 
family conflicts is an important ministry of the church. 

Conflicts of ideas if channeled constructively, can be creative, 
leading to new understandings and behavior. Such conflicts within the 
family caused by confusion over the family's identity and mission can be 
resolved by family structures that allow family members to deal with these 
questions in non-violent and creative ways. 

Some families deal with conflict by holding intentional conversations 
at a meal each day, such as breakfast, that may use scripture or other 
constructive writings along with the day's news as a springboard for 

292 



conversation involving all members of the family. Meaningful conversatiorjl 
require the recognition not only of equality in marriage by the spouses bu 
also the importance of each child's (and of each grandparent' 
contribution. 

Although conflict in the long run cannot be avoided altogether 
regular and structured family meetings provide the opportunity to ai 
gripes and even express hostilities following agreed upon ground rules fo 
their expression. A family that builds intentional communication is mor 
able to resolve conflicts without violence. 

Some suggested approaches for parents to establish healthy patterns o 
conflict resolution include: 

1. Developing, practicing, and teaching the philosophy that violence 1 
never the best solution to problems or disagreements. 

2. Seeking appropriate forms of discipline. 

3. Restricting the viewing of violence on TV and in the theater. 

4. Taking parenting courses to learn creative ways of dealing wltl 
conflict. 

5. Helping children learn to resolve conflicts without violence. 

6. Recognizing the importance of childhood training and seeking counselini 
if the parents' background includes abuse as a child or if the home wi' 
violent. 

Violent conflict among family members caused by frustration or angerj 
for instance, can be reduced to a tolerable level by counseling, grou) 
therapy, support systems, and admitting the need for help. The last flvi 
years have seen counseling centers and shelters dealing with sexual an< 
domestic violence established across the country, largely in response t< 
the women's movement. Clergy are being trained in ministries to boti 
victims and abusers. 

But more needs to be done. Statutes forbidding family abuse were not 
enacted until the 1970's and are still unevenly enforced. Problems ar 
legion - ambivalence of the abused spouse, who is afraid to stay and afraK 
to go; helplessness of the abused child, whose parents cover up the abuse 
inability of the abuser to deal with hisAier own problems which are causlm 
the abuse - to name a few. 

Church members should be reminded that the law required that chili 
abuse or suspected abuse be reported to the Department of Social ServicesJ 
More generally, the church should recognize family conflict as an existing] 
and potential problem and offer counseling, referral to shelters, training' 
for parenting, and courses in conflict resolution as well as encourage' 
church members to participate in other community efforts to deal with 
conflicts in the family. 

COMMUNITY CONFLICTS 

Communities, like families, have conflicts that call for peaceful 
resolution and, often, reconciliation. Conflict in towns, counties, and 
states vary according to the issue and the emotion an issue arouses. 

Conflicts may range from such simple problems to resolve as when trash 
is to be picked up to more complicated disputes between states. A community 
can become deeply divided over questions of public policy, such as school 
merger or zoning issues, or become embroiled in deeper Issues of morality 
and religious belief, such as beer and wine referendums, sales o£ 
pornographic materials, or the regulation of church schools. 

Such conflicts will always exist wherever there are communities of 
people with different perpectives, beliefs, and priorities. Unless they 
paralyze government functions or threaten the community's health and 
safety, such conflicts can even be a structive part of a community's life - 
providing healthy motives and opportunities for growth In community 
relations. 

Whatever the positions on a particular issue held by individuals, a 
Christian must be concerned with resolving community disputes in a way that 
also can unite and heal the commanity. Even when Christians are asked to 
defend views unpopular in the community, as much as possible they should be 
agents of God's reconciling love. 

Ways of resolving community conflicts are as varied as the conflicts 
themselves, beginning with phone calls to local officials and extending to 
cases before the supreme court. Most community conflicts are worked out 
quietly among affected parties, never receiving publicity. But when more 
personal ways of handling conflict do not satisfy all parties Involved, a 
community has other ways to resolve disputes. 

Such ways include; electing new officials; public hearings making 
people aware of conflict; the formation of neighborhood associations; 
public debates; referendums or recall elections; town meetings; pressure 
applied to local, state, or federal officials through letter writing, 
telephone calls, or telegrams;^ arbitration;' mediation services; design of 

29 3 



s-'clal programs; new legislat ion; the courts; or, when all else fails, 
c'il disobedience. 

Community conflicts can best be resolved, and differences reconciled, 

w'H Christians set an example of increased community participation and 

: ulerstanding; when public officials exert strong, positive leadership;' and 

w»n the church leads the way for recognizing and promoting the worth and 

djnity of all persons. 

Many community conflicts are allowed to rise through apathy and 
iiorance. Those not involved in the community are most apt to feel 
alenated from it;' those who are not involved in the community are most apt 
t feel alienated from it;' those who are not informed on community affairs 
ti most apt to misunderstand their consequences. Christians, like everyone 
ese, have a civic obligation to become involved on issues of community 
Iportance- attending public hearings, participating in public debates, and 
eerclsing their voice in government through the ballot box and 
cmmunications with elected officials. 

In moments of conflict, the Christian's behavior is particularly 
;portant in bringing about reconciliation and healing. In the heat of 
|,blic controversy. Christians involved in community affairs would do well 
l! follow the advice of Paul to Titus: "To speak evil of no one, to avoid 
<arreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all men." 

Emotional issues are the most difficult for communities to resolve. 
Ven issues become a part of our hearts, shaping our understanding of 
irselves and communities, pat answers are not sufficient. The use of 
lalogue becomes less meanfingful and inefficient. Then elected leaders 
led to step forward, directing/establishing pathways for reform, 
jmmunication, and working together. They in effect become the mediators 
■ >r the community.. Communities without firm leadership frequently drift 
ito unnecessary conflict. 

When community conflicts arise from the neglect of the community to 
se value in all its citizens, then the church needs to lead the way in 
ffirming the worth and dignity of the individual. Poor race relations, for 
<ample, sometimes lead to violent conflict within communities. The use of 
)urt cases and legislation often are not enough; people have to experience 
le reality of worth before they can accept the worthiness of others. But 
roviding opportunities for different people to be together in less 
:ressful situations can be a positive step on the road to resolving the 
snflict, and churches should be in the forefront of bringing communities 
Dgether. 

ATIONAL CONFLICT 

The most prominent arena of conflict on the national level is usually 
olitical as candidates and their parties challenge or defend public 
jOlicies. Public debate continues to rage over domestic priorities, 
[ilitary spending, international diplomacy, and arms control negotiations, 
imericans are divided by region, race, and income. Special interest groups 
iave further muddied the waters of conflict. Conversation, Womens' Rights, 
ay Rights, Nazi, KKK, and Peace and Justice groups all make points 
icceptable to any number of people and toleration and reconciliation is 
>ften lost in the heat - and sometimes violence - of advocacy. 

In these divisions in the nation, the church mixes conflict and 
>pportunity in the same crucible, paradoxically making reconciliation both 
lifficult and possible. 

Reconciliation is difficult because the church cuts across all lines 
>f conflict. Democrats, Republicans, activists, pacifists, hawks, doves, 
:onservat ives, radicals, black, white, red, rich, poor, middle class, men, 
ind women have all found refuge and purpose for their beliefs in the 
:eachings and doctrines of the church and scripture. Thus national conflict 
Inevitably finds its way into the church and the church's approach to 
:heology. United Methodists are polarized as they try futilely to answer 
Jonflicting demands from all groups who claim allegience to Jesus Christ. 

But reconciliation is possible precisely because the conflict remains 
In the church. As long as the church tries to bring all persons under the 
5anner of Jesus Christ, the grounds for understanding a different person of 
Jifferent convictions continue to exist. Christians struggling with 
national conflicts have also learned "we are one in the Spirit," 
Hscovering a common foundation in the reconciling love of Christ. 

In recent years, conflict has served to remind Christians that no one 
jarty or set of ideas holds all the answers, and the church has been made 
sensitive to a variety of national problems. Meanwhile, in humanity's 
Incessant search for fulfillment and meaning, faith in Jesus Christ has not 
5nly ended the serch for some, but allowed the search to continue - and 
jven begin - for others. 

294 



INTERNATIONAL CONFLICT 

Conflict in the world is too often bloody. Non-violent confllc 
resolution in the international realm inescapably involves alternatives t ; '^ 
the use of arms. Traditionally, efforts to resolve conflicts have bee»-''\ 
centered around diplomatic negotiations and manuevers that all too of te ; 
turns into ambassadorial threats of armed force. tl*'' 

True diplomacy is based upon negotiations, not threats. Settlementi»»' 
freely entered into by the interested parties are negotiated on the basTFJ 
of common interests of both parties, which are protected without thilf"' 
imposition of restrictions that either side finds too difficult to observe 

Almost all international disputes are capable of negotiate 1 
settlements on this basis if sufficient time, commitment, and a good wilt 
exist - whether the issue is possession of a small island which could bj 
useful or nuclear arms negotiations in which both sides recognize thei ; 
real interest is survival. The will to negotiate, however, must always b 
present, and Christians should try to provide a political climate tha^jj 
would not demand immediate and violent responses so that governments ca* 
have the climate and support needed for negotiations. 

Once negotiated settlements are reached, it is useful for Christian 
to involve themselves in seeking the ratification of reasonable and usefu 
treaties, as the North Carolina Conference did in its 1978 position on th 
Panama Canal Treaty. 

The present ICJ labors under the further difficulty of '^®^"m 
restricted by self-judging amendments or reservations, unilaterally imposeJ " 
by nations when they ratified the ICJ treaty. The most prominent of thes* * 
is the United States' own "Conally Reservation" that says, in effect, thav |« 
we can judge ourselves. The resolution reserves to the United States th(| 
authority to decide whether the ICJ has jurisdiction in matters involving 
the United States. Hence, it is unlikely that the United States will alio?! » 
itself effectively to be sued in the International Court. H 

The Conally Reservation has hurt American interests. Other nations] " 
which would otherwise abide by court decisions, can use the principle oi i 
reciprocity to claim a similar reservation when they are faced witl 
litigation by the United States or its citizens. It would be in tht|| 
interest no only of America's own litigation rights but of th(< 
effectiveness of the International Court of Justice for the United Statesjf 
to repeal the Conally Reservation. ^' 

In another attempt to resolve international conflicts without '' 
violence, the United Nations has for the past 39 years provided machiner^l" 
for regular and public negotiations on security and other important issues 
But the United Nations, based strictly upon diplomacy, does not havf 
enforcement powers because it does not have the character of world law.- 
This limitation was borrowed from the pre-atom bomb era, but in the nucleai 
age it has imposed increasing inhibitions upon the quest for world law an ' 
order. 

World conflict would be eased by giving the United Nations more 
enforcement power through the modification of the "veto" process in the; 
Security Council. At the same time, in order to accomplish this, a more, 
just and realistic means of representation needs to be devised than the 
simple "one-nation-one vote" procedure In the General Assembly. Following! 
the model of American representative government, perhaps the Security 
Council could evolve into a representative body without veto. In view of 
the need for representation by nations, by populations, by wealth, and 
other power considerations, perhaps a tri-cameral arrangement would be! 
possible and useful. 

The church and Christian leaders should study and support ways to help 
an already useful organization, the United Nations, evolve into a more 
effective instrument for international conflict resolution. 

In international as well as national and community affairs, moreover, 
there can be not real reconciliation of conflict without justice. This fact 
is recognized in our church's 1980-84 quadrennial emphasis on "Peace with 
Justice" which calls upon United Methodist Churches, Conferences, and 
individuals to work for a Faithful World, a Secure World* a Disarmed World, 
and a Just World. 

Injustice causes instability that will bring forth violence - riots, 
invasions, uprisings, coups d'etat and "brushfire wars." 

It is essential that, as Christians study foreign policy issues, they 
seek justice and not merely the short-term "national interest." Christian 
faith gives Christians the resources, through enabling them to be 
self-critical and not merely judgmental of others, to make a creative 
contribution to resolving world conflicts justly. 

Non-violent conflict resolution has been a matter of serious study and 
real effort by statesmen of the diverse countries for many decades and 
centuries. But Christians must not think non-violent conflict resolution 

29 5 



eong nations is an ideal which can never be realized. Indeed, in these 
cngerous days of the nuclear arms race and East-West confrontation, 
rn-violent conflict resolution is absolutely essential if we are to 
t rvive. 

What is needed among nations, ultimately, is will, dedication, and 

(eativity in the pursuit of reconciliation and with the power of God's 

iconciling love. These are resources that Christians and churches can help 

[ovide - around the world as well as at home. Let us be diligently 

ithful in so doing. 



COMMISSION ON REUGION AND RACE 

CHANGES OF CONCERN TO THE COMMISSION: From June, 1972, until June, 
»83, our conference had district superintendents and conference staff 
arsons who were Black or Native American. Now ethnic minorities are 
isistant to the Bishop and Assistant to the Cabinet. One support staff 
>rson in the Methodist Building is Black. 

OUR FIRST RESPONSIBILITY: As a reporting and monitoring agency, we 
ind that there are 59 ethnic minority persons among 547 individuals 
.erving on boards, commissions, and committees of the conference. At our 
ix major institutions, three Blacks are in administration. Six Blacks and 
ne Native American are on staffs. Twenty-four Blacks are secretaries, 
ixteen Blacks and three Native Americans work in maintenance. Thirteen 
lacks hold supervisory positions. Three Blacks and one Asian are on 
acuities. Four hundred and twenty-two Blacks, 55 Asians, and 16 Native 
mericans are full-time students. Seven Blacks are served by the 
children's Home. Two Blacks and one native American reside at Wesley 
ines. All but one institution has one or two minority persons on boards 
if trustees. All but one institution has an Affirmative Action Program. 

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM: Pursuing the objective of inclusiveness, 
re continue to lift up the policy of our Conference that requires all 
(istrict Councils, Boards, Commissions, and Cabinet to elect among their 
[uadrennial officers a Coordinator of Religion and Race. The task of this 
Joordinator is to develop a plan of Affirmative Action appropriate to 
lis/her agency. We rejoice in the fact that the following nine agencies 
lave elected or appointed a Coordinator of Religion and Race: Boards of 
Education, Archives and History, Health and Welfare, Evangelism, Church and 
Society,. Stewardship; Commissions on Christian Unity and Interreligious 
Concerns, Status and Role of Women, and Communications. 

I PROJECT OF NOTE; We commend the Commission on the Status and Role of 
^omen for planning the study of open itineracy at the 1983 January 
Workshops. They used the General Commission on Religion and Race's 
definition of open itineracy. We also commend the Sanford District Council 
on Ministries and Mrs. Grace Black for organizing a splendid forum on human 
relations. It was attended by 60 persons on March 10, 1984. In Lent of 
1983 and 1984 the Roanoke Valley Ministerial Fellowship, with the Rev. 
Brooks Patten's leadership, held well-attended inter-faith and inter-racial 
community rallies. Across the Conference a few churches invited Blacks, 
Native Awericans, and female clergy to preach. May we hear from others? 

MINORITY GROUP SELF-DETERMINATION FUND: The General Commission on 
Religion and Race has funded four projects within our area: $4,250 Native 
American Youth at Pembroke;' $7,000 Sampson County Community Development at 
Clinton; $7,500 Dobbins Heights Incorporation near Hamlet; and $5,000 John 
Wesley Testing/Learning Center in Fayetteville (new for 1984). 

YOUR MONEY HELPS MINORITIES: In 1983 we spent $400 on Youth UNA/ash. 
Tour; $500 for Sr. Hi Workshop;' $551 Black Methodist for Church Renewal; 
$130 Resolutions at A.C. for EMLC; $400 Evangelism Congress; $400 SEJ Task 
Force on RSiR; $300 UM Minority Scholarships at Learning Together Center, 
Raleigh. 

Mr. President and members of conference, our departed James McCallum 
often said, "We can all share in our successes, and we can all share in our 
failures. " 

Your old Commission on Religion and Race leaves to your new Commission 
both successes and failures in our business of affirming the talents, and 
gifts, and privileges, and responsibilities of the minority members of our 
churches. I sense that we all as a conference rejoice in the progress of 
minorities in our midst, but we are frustrated by "dreams deferred", to use 
the words of Langston Hughes. 

Out of deferred dreams come five broad concerns that we leave to the 
new Commission on Religion and Race. These are found in Section II, Page 5. 

296 



Conference, we have elected the members of our boards and agencies f ti j| 
the new quadrennium. Of these boards, commissions, and committees of th' 
conference, I find that the number of minorities is 55. This total is les. 
than the 59 reported for last year, but probably about the same 10% of al*^ 
individuals elected. 

I hope that a large number of these elected minorities are preser'*^ 
here in this hall. I congratulate and challenge each of you to do yoa 
best for our Lord Jesus and really participate on the committees to whic; 
you have been elected. Many eyes are watching to evaluate and encouraqi: 
your participation. May any of these 55 please stand now. I 

Dear Bishop Cannon, if there can be one issue above all others witii 
which this commission has struggles, it is that of minority part icipatio: 
in the decisions of our conference. The only plan we have is the old plaii 
which is the adopted, established policy of our conference. This is tl 
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM outlined in our report. This policy is found ei 
Page 312 of the 1983 Journal. 

I urge that you new boards and agencies that meet in Goldsboro 
Thursday, June 21, please be sure that a Coordinator of Religion and Ra 
is elected for your body. I do not suggest that you elect a minorit 
person as your coordinator, since hisAier job is to serve the needs of th 
ethnic minorities in your group. Also, please give prayerful cons ide rat i<i' 
to the election of ethnic minorities as chairpersons. Brother Sam Townsen^ 
said, "I was always a vice-chairperson, never a chairperson." 

And naturally. Religion and Race is eager to see minorities on thi 
Conference Staff and the Cabinet. Therefore, we applaud the work of th| 
Committee on Native American Concerns. I request that you give attention tT 
the words of Vernon Tyson, chairperson of that committee. 

I move that you adopt this report and the six broad concerns 
Section II.

COMMITTEE ON NATIVE AMERICAN CONCERNS 



Charles D. Myers, Chairpersof 

S 



Following the Annual Conference in 1983 Bishop Cannon appointed 
Committee on Native American Concerns. The full committee has met thre 
times during the year and the Executive Committee once. At the first 
meeting on November 12, 1983, officers were elected and areas of conceri 
identified. Officers were: 

Chairman Vernon C. Tyson 

Vice-chairman L. Herbert Moore 

Secretary Catharine Vick 

Executive Committee Members Simeon F. Cummings, Linda James, 

Oscar D. Jacobs 

The nine areas of concern were priortized. The chairman appointed foui 
cluster groups to work on these issues. 

At the second meeting on January 8, 1984, Dr. Adolph Dial discussei 
the development of the Methodist Church among the Lumbees and its relatiot 
to them and other churches serving the Lumbees. Reports were given frol 
each cluster group. 

Group I discussed the issue of a Native American becoming a district 
superintendent. It recognized the perceived obstacles, such as the number 
of Native Americans eligible and the jump in salary. However, it will 
still pursue the goal of a Native American becoming a district 
superintendent. It is grateful for the present position established as 
Assistant to the Cabinet. 

Group II dealt with the ways to develop sensitivity to the concerns of 
Native Americans and recommended: (1) An episcopal visit to the Nativt 
American community to listen to the concerns of the people, and (2) To have 
more lay and clergy members on boards and agencies. 

Group III considered ways to elect and empower proper persons ir 
desired positions. The group presented a plan to secure names for the 
Committee on Nominations of the Conference to use in securing persons tc 
serve on boards and agencies in the next quadrennium. 

Group IV talked about pastors' salaries and open itineracy and the 
empowerment of ethnic minority ministers. It recommended that Native 
American pastors receive, the year following their ordination as elder, a 
salary 5% above minimum salary, the second year 10% above minimum salary, 
and so on until the fifth year. They also suggested continuing work for 
open itineracy by asking thge district superintendents to obtain in writinc 
from Native American pastors their willingness to serve anywhere and 
encouraging the district superintendents to place Native American pastors 

297 



I their districts. 

The Executive Committee met with Bishop Cannon and presented the 
raort of the Committee to him for his information and consideration. 

The Committee urges that conversation and consultation between the 
/inual Conference and the Native Americans be continued.

Catharine Vick, Secretary 



ETHMIC MmORITY LOCAL CHURCH COMMTITEE 

Bishop Cannon, Members and Friends of the North Carolina Conference:! 
very happy to report to you that the EMLC Committee of the Conference 
ancil on Ministries (CCOM) has been a very functional committee this 
It. 

We have assumed tasks and set goals and worked faithfully under the 
idance of the CCOM and have reported to that body at each meeting. 

We have attempted with good success to bring hope and vitality to our 
urches across the conference. 

We feel that growth and development have been realized and pride has 
creased because of the sensitivity of this conference to the MISSIONAL 
:ORITY. 

We have the advantage of excellent cooperation from our Bishop and 
;rom our Council Executive Director, and we have had the most gratifying 
cperience of working under the careful and caring and able leadership of 
je Rev. A. P. Hill. To each we and this conference owe a large measure of 
ratitude. 

I believe our adopted Conference-Wide Congregational Development and 
lurch Growth Plan is consistent with the goals and objectives of EMLC and 
D that end I see a very productive year before us. 

The Committee report is in the Book of Reports, Section IV, page 10. 
urge you to read it. We ask for continued support of the Missional 



riority.

COMMISSION ON STATUS AND ROLE OF WOMEN 

Bishop Cannon, members of the North Carolina Annual Conference, the 
ritten report filed by the Commission on the Status and Rofle of Women, 
nd found in section IV, pages 20 and 21 of the 1984 Book of 
ecommendations and Reports, anticipates as well as reflects. It recalls 
(ome of the efforts of the commission in the past quadrennium to fulfill 
;ts disciplinary requirements as an advocate, a catalyst and a monitor, 
.elping to ensure the full participation of women in the life of the 
rhurch. 

But the report also looks ahead to our continued endeavors to fulfill 
:hese same functions. On behalf of the commission, I reaffirm today our 
jommitment to this overall objective for the new quadrennium: the 
increasing of awareness, acceptance and utilization of the gifts and graces 
5f laywomen and clergywomen in the church's ministry. 

In the spirit of that objective, COSROW welcomes the recent action of 
:he General Conference, providing for a Status and Role of Women work area 
Ln each local church. We likewise are excited about the potential open to 
IS because of the women who will serve from each district on the conference 
commission and on the district councils on ministry. We believe these 
jctions will improve our ability to carry out our responsibilities to all 
Jersons, at every level of the church's life. 

One of the major concerns of the commission for 1984 has been to 
Implement, as authorized by this annual conference in 1983, an event in 
sach district entitled "The Expanding Roles of Men and Women: A 
Prustbuilding Workshop." Recognizing that all of us, men and women alike, 
lave sex biases out of which we speak and act, COSROW designed the event to 
lelp persons identify their own biases and to find ways to affirm each 
ather in a shared ministry. 

As of this date, eleven of our twelve districts have held the 
*orkshop. Our greatest satisfaction from feedback and evaluation is that 
the events have indeed encouraged persons to examine their attitudes and to 
recognize others, male or female, as persons of worth and uniqueness. Our 

298 



greatest disappointment is that attendance at the workshops fell short of 
what we had hoped. Perhaps the controversial and emotional nature of the 
issue helps to explain both the low attendance and the need for our 
continued self-examination of our sex prejudices. 

COSROW expresses deep gratitude to Ernie Porter, Bob Baldridge, Glenda' 
Johnson, Shirley Bethea, Bob Grazier, Bill Norton and Helen Crotwell for' 
their long-term commitment to this very demanding project. We are also' 
grateful to all of you who shared in it in your own districts. We 
encourage each local church to adapt the model to your own situation and to 
encourage trust-building experiences among your church family. ! 

An increasingly important concern of the commission is that of child 
care at meetings of the church on all levels. Each session of this annual 
conference makes it newly apparent that child care needs to be provided at 
this event. I have this week initiated conversation with parents who share 
an interest in this matter. I have also had parents approach me with their 
concerns about child care and the church. One point continues to emerge ir 
these conversations; more young parents, especially women, would attend 
more meetings of the church, on local, district and conference levels, if 
child care were provided at those meetings. 

COSROW has a committee preparing a pool of information from districts 
in our conference as well as from other annual conferences regarding whav 
is being done in those places to prepare child care. The Sanford District 
here in North Carolina is enjoying the fruits of child care provided at its 
meetings, and is providing resource ideas for us in our work. The 
commission is committed to thoroughly exploring the possibilities here in 
our conference, and to preparing concrete recommendations as soon as 
possible. 

The commission continues to encourage the use of inclusive language in 
meetings of the church on every level, in the preparation of all written 
forms used by the church, anbd in our day-by-day living with each other. 
While we recognize that there are agonizing difficulties attached to this 
issue, we also believe that there are many instances where inclusive 
language is not only appropriate; it is also possible, if we are sensitive 
human beings and believe that old habits can indeed be broken. May we not 
allow our historic use of language to serve as window dressing for our sex 
bias. 

COSROW is proud to affirm the clergywomen in the North Carolina 
Conference, and takes seriously its role as an advocate for them. As a 
commission we epxpress our gratitude, particularly to the laity in our 
conference, who have received women as your pastors, who have loved and 
supported and blessed them. We call upon the churches of this conference 
to continue to lift them up as God's servants, committed to their call toj 
ministry, and desiring to be one with all in the spirit of Jesus Christ.! 
We ask you to help them keep on proclaiming grace and freedom throughout! 
our conference. I 

Bishop Cannon, on behalf of the Commission on the Status and Role of 
Women, I thank you for your interest in our work and your support of it. 
We pray for you God's blessings as you leave our conference, and continue 
to also proclaim God's grace and freedom.

BOARD OF WORSHIP 

WORSHIP AT CONFERENCE-WIDE EVENTS: The Board of Worship played an 
active role in planning and assissting in the leadership of worship 
services at many conference-wide programs in the last year. The Reverend 
Nancy Best did her usual inspiring job by preparing and leading early 
morning sessions of Holy Communion at the 1983 Annual Conference. 

CONTINUED EDUCATION FOR CLERGY AND LAITY: The Board of Worship 

believes one of its major tasks is to work with other conference agencies 
in providing continuing education opportunities for clergy and laity. The 
Reverend Alan Swartz prepared the guide to the ecumenical lectionary, 
Celebrating the Church Year . Next year's guide is now in preparation. The 
Board of Worship planned a workshop for pastors and musicians for the 
purpose of studying ways to plan Sunday worship. Bill Weisser, diaconal 
minister of music at Edenton Street United Methodist Church was responsible 
for the workshop details. A workshop was funded to be held in 1985 in 
conjunction with the Continuing Education Office of Duke Divinity School in 
Supplemental Worship Resources .

BOARD OF ORDAINED MINISTRY REPORT 

i^INATION SERVICE FOR DEACONS AND ELDERS: The ordination service always 
covides one of the high moments of any Annual Conference Session, for it 
^rmbolizes the continuity of the ordained clergy from one generation to 
lother. The Sunday afternoon and evening services that mark the beginning 
f the 1984 Annual Conference were held in Reeves Auditorium on the 
ethodist College campus. The Board of Ordained Ministry presented a total 
f twenty-four men and women to be ordained as Deacons and fourteen to be 
rdained as Elders. At the Executive Session of the Annual Conference, 
wenty-three persons were elected to Probationary Membership, three 
o Associate Membership, and fourteen to Full Connection. 

The recommendation of these forty persons represents a total of seven 
ull days of interview periods as well as six other related meetings of the 
oard during the year. To facilitate its work the Board divides into three 
Committees for the interviewing period, dealing with the candidate's call 
,nd its relation to hisAier preparation for ministry, the candidate's 
.bility to preach and conduct public worship, and the candidate's knowledge 
.f the historic doctrines of our faith and his/her ability to communicate 
hem to a congregation. Assisting those preparing to retire or to move 
nto a ministerial status other than that of the active pastorate is also a 
(ajor responsibility of one of the committees of the Board. 

The Board and District Committees on the Ordained Ministry provide 
luidance and support for persons seeking to become ordained ministers, 
approximately one hundred persons, male and female, and representative of 
ill three racial groups within our Conference, are now in the various 
stages of preparation for Conference membership and ordination in the years 
10 come. 

[JVALUATION OF THE PASTORAL MINISTRY: In the continuing process of 

Ijvaluation of pastoral ministry, suggestions were made by district 
superintendents, Pastor-Parish Relations Committees and pastors for 
revising the pastoral evaluation to a more simplified form. This 

simplified form was basically drawn from the ministerial job description in 
the Book of Discipline and the suggestions from the Division of Ordained 
Ministry. Following a meeting of the Evaluation Committee and 

representatives from the Board of Ordained Ministry and the Cabinet, a 
final evaluation form was drawn up and sent to the Pastor-Par iush Relations 
Committee and pastor of each charge, along with the "Nature and Function of 
Pastoral Ministry" supplied by the Division of Ordained Ministry. The form 
was generally received with good response for the first year's effort, with 
a few possible suggestions to be incorporated for next year. 

The final results from the Evaluation Committee showed that the 
evaluation process should be done in the late fall or early winter of each 
year (around Thanksgiving would be best) by the Pastor-Parish Relations 
Committee going out of office at the end of the calendar year so as not to 
let this evaluation become confused with the appointment making process 
each spring. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION: Our Conference members are participating in a wide 
variety of continuation education events to enhance and strengthen their 
talents and capabilities. In addition to numerous opportunities provided 
by the Duke Divinity School on campus and in the districts, conference 

300 



members have also been involved with programs at Asbury Theologica] 
Seminary, the Babcock Center (Wake Forest University), Kirkridge Retreatm 
Center, Intentional Growth Center (Lake Junaluska), Louisburg College,-;! 
Perkins School of Theology, School for Practical Christianity, VanderblltiJl 
University Divinity School, and others. While events that are funded b^ 
the Duke Endowment must be related to the Duke Divinity School those fundec 
by the Continuing Education Committee, the minister, or the minister's 
charge are not thus restricted. 

Conference members may apply for maximum one-week grants of $150.00, 
or $300.00 for a two-week event. Each charge is requested to provide at 
least $200.00 annually for their pastor's continuing education, availableijii 
through voucher for events attended, or allowed to accumulate, if desire^Ji 
by the pastor, over several years toward a possible longer and raoreiiy 
expensive event. ID 

A resolution was passed in 1983 to establish a uniform and equitablcjili 
standard of measure for evaluating an approved Continuing Education Unitjjt 
(CEU) as ten (10) contact hours of participation in an organized continuinc 
education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, andj^ 
qualified instruction, as certified by a Higher Education accredit inc'i' 
agency or the Council on the Continuing Education Unit. i; 

It is recommended that the Annual Conference approve the plan foiln 
pastors to report a minimum of two approved Continuing Education Unitaj^ 
(CEU's) each year to the office of the District Superintendent. It is'; 

requested that the enclosed text for a brochure describing the Continuing,, 
Education program for ministerial members of the Annual Conference be; 
approved. The text of this proposed brochure follows: „ 

CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY IN THE NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 
Rationale ; A prime expectation of every minister of the North Carolina 
Annual Conference is that professional growth will continue. In recent 

years one of the major avenues through which such growth has occurred has 
been continuing education. The General Conference of the United Methodist 
Church has recognized this by requiring annual participation in a 
continuing education program by each ordained minister seeking appointment 
(1980 Discipline , par. 423.1c) 

Definition ; Continuing education is defined as an organized, structured 
program of formal study under competent leadership with clearly defined 
goals and objectives. Here the key words are "organized, "competent, 
leadership", and "clearly-defined goals and objectives". By this 

definition certain activities, though worthwhile, are not considered 
"continuing education", e.g., recreational programs, promotional meetings, 
worship services, entertainments, undirected reading and study, travel 

(Except for limited lecture, seminar, or work-shop time),, and the like. j 

The Conference Program ; The Conference Board of Ordained Ministry, through 
the Committee on Continuing Education performs three functions; (1) it 

sets minimum continuing education standards for ministry, (2) it 
establishes specific guidelines for continuing education programs, and (3) 
it seeks to insure their availability. 

(1) Minimum Standards . The North Carolina Conference has established 
as a minimum standard two Continuing Education Units (CEU's) to be earned 
by each minister from an approved continuing education program each year. 
One CEU is defined as ten contact hours of participation in an approved 
continuing education program. 

(2) Guideline for Continuing Education Programs . CEU's will be 
approved by those programs sponsored by organizations which are accredited 
by (a) a regional educational agency, such as the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools, or (b) a professional accreditat ing agency, such as 
the American Medical Association, or (c) the Council on the Continuing 
Education Unit. It should also be noted that only those programs which 
relate directly to ministerial growth and development will be approved. 

(3) Insuring their Availability . Efforts by the Board of Ordained 
Ministry to insure the availability of continuing education programs 
include encouraging conference-related and other colleges within conference 
bounds to offer courses for ministers, providing supplementary financial 
aid for ministers, publicing approved programs, and identifying specific 
subject areas for needed programs. 

Role of the Local Church ; In addition to the minister, the local church 
has a s ignif icant stake in the success of continuing education programs. 
The local church, therefore, has an important role to play in continuing 
education. The Pastor-Parish Relations Committee of the local church: 
(1) Confers with the pastor and the District Superintendent in the 
development of a continuing education program which will enhance the total 

301 



inistry of the church. 

) Provides "leaves of absence for study at least one week each year and 
>ast one month during one year of each quadrennium. " Such leaves of 
j)sence are not to be considered vacation time. (1980 Discipline . Par. 

1.2) 

I) Recommends to the church's Finance Committee budgetary funds to be 
)plied toward the minister's continuing education program. 
J providing funds for continuing education programs the Pastor-Parish 
slat ions Committee should insure that only those programs which meet both 
le definitions and specific guidelines above are funded. 

inancial Aid to Ministers ; Funding for continuing education is the 

ombined responsibility of the participation, the congregation, the 
ponsoring institution, and the Annual Conference. Conference funds for 
Dntinuing education are derived as a portion of conference acceptances of 
le Ministerial Education Fund. Thus, it is not possible (nor is it 
esirable) for the conference to assume a major responsibility. 

All persons under episcopal appointment to charges, conference staff 
bsitions, district superintendents, and conference-related agencies and 
Institutions are eligible for gra-ritfe from conference funds provided: 

1) The program does not lead to advancement from one level of conference 
elationship to another nor does it lead to the acquisition of an 
'dvanced degree, unless the program is designed to enhance parish ministry. 

2) The program meets the definitions and conference guidelines described 
bove. 

'3) The applicant has documented his or her efforts to secure funding from 
.ther sources. 

4) The application for a grant is filed on the appropriate form furnishing 
complete information about the event and bearing the signatures of the 
ipplicant, the Pastor-Parish Relations ch airperson, and the District 
Juperintendent. 

In providing grants, the conference will place limits as follows; 
;i) The maximum grant to an individual applicant over one conference year 
is $300.00 

'(2) For a one-week event, $150,000 will be the maximum grant;' for a 
:wo-week event, $300.00. 

Monitoring Continuing Educations Units ; 

nn The District Superintendent may suggest to the pastor the area of 

continuing education he or she should take to facilitate his or her 

professional growth. 

1(2) Ministers shall have the responsibility for securing from the 

iinstitution granting continuing education credit a record of earned credit 

and providing a copy of this record to his or her District Superintendent. 

(3) We recommend that representatives of conference-related institutions 

granting continuing education credits within the North Carolina Conference 

meet to plan and coordinate continuing education courses with a view to 

developing on-going and new courses. 

MINISTERIAL EDUCATION FUND ASSISTANCE; The Miniterial Education Fund 

remains the major source of support for theological education In The United 
Methodist Church for the 1981-1984 quadrennium. When the local church 

remits the Ministerial Education Fund to the conference treasurer, it is 
divided two ways. The larger portion (75%) is sent to the Division of 
Higher Education and Ministry in Nashville to be divided among the United 
Methodist seminaries for their operating expenses and for scholarship help 
to minority and special students. The remaining 25% is retained by the 
Board of Ordained Ministry in the North Carolina Conference. 

The Board of Ordained Minister may use its funds to provide 
scholarship assistance for ministerial education, for continuing education, 
and for recruitment. However, the amount of fnntSs available during the 
past few years and the number of students seeking to prepare for ordained 
ministry has made necessary the use of almost all of the funds for 
scholarships for ministerial candidates.

Grants to students eligible for full scholarships were based on 35% ot 
the actual educational cost (tuition and fees and an annual $300.00 book 
allowance). For students at Duke Divinity School this was $1,442.00 foi 
full-time (four courses) students and $1,100.00 for student pastors (th ret 
courses) annually. At Southeastern this was $740.00 for full-time students 
and $510.00 for less than full time students annually. 

The need to continue our support of the Ministerial Education Fund at 
the present level, and to increase where possible, is borne out by thes= 
statistics of our present group of students preparing for the ordainec 
ministry and the need to move further into continuing educatior 
opportunities for the ministers already in the field. 

PASTORAL CARE: The committee on Pastoral Care holds as a basic; 
responsibility the opportunity to provide support for the parsonage familyj 
through events and persons (or agencies) that can enrich good family life- 
or bring help to those who may be in turmoil. District and Conference 
Marriage Enrichment Seminars have provided the enrichment for a number of^ 
couples, and six agencies and three individual counselors stand ready to 
assist in times of trouble. 

The Committee provides the following recommendations: 

1. That each District should give more attention to encourage couples 
attend Marriage Enrichment events. 

2. That financial planning seminars be provided by the District Council 
Ministries. 

3. That Pre-retirement Seminars be held in each District. 

4. That Stress Workshops be held on the Conference or District level. 

5. That a uniform policy be adopted dealing with the spouse and family of 
an active minister who dies. 

The Committee encourages the formation of cluster groups of families 
within a District for periodic fellowship. The formation of support groups 
for spouses of clergy following Potpourri this year is also seen as a 
positive opportunity for greater fellowship among this important group 
within the Conference. 

A Task Force to inquire into the matter of clergy bankruptcies was! 
formed by the Board of Ordained Ministry during last year, and its report: 
brought before us the need to continue to monitor financial 
responsibilities in order to prevent financial difficulties such as to 
cause embarrassment to cast an unfavorable reflection upon the ordained 
ministry of the North Carolina Annual Conference; and further to ask the 
Committee on Pastoral Care to continue to provide financial counseling for 
the ministers of the conference. 

An updated edition of the brochure describing the services provided by 
the Committee on Pastoral Care is being provided to each parsonage family, 
as well as an updated brochure on parsonage living which will continue to 
provide invaluable service to ministers and their families in the support, 
process and advantages of our Methodist system. 

PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING AND EVALUATION: During the past two years a program 
of testing and evaluation has been carried out by the Board of Ordained 
Ministry at the entrance level to Associate and Probationary Membership. 
This two-day period provides for a wide variety of tests to be administered 
by the Career and Personal Counseling Service on the campus of Saint 
Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg. The program is administered 
and staffed by several clergypersons of United Methodist and Presbyterian 
relationships. 

It has been the design of the program to help the ministerial 
candidate to effectively assess his/her gifts and graces and to compare the 
capacities needed for ministry with those discovered in one's self. To 
assist the candidate to deal constructively with those areas that are or 

303 



ould become problem areas that would hinder effective ministry is likewise 
goal. 

Although the tests themselves are not used as an automatic measure of 
pproval or a bar to further progress, they have become a strong check on 
he affirmations or concerns already developed by the Board in its 
nterview process. 

Upon recommendation of this committee, the Board of Ordained Ministry 
pproved the elimination of a second testing period which would have come 
rior to a candidate being received into Full Connection and with Elder's 
rders. For the coming conference year, the committee has made 

rrangements with the staff of the Career and Personal Counseling Service 
o have the testing program to be administered at a negotiated time at Duke 
livinity School and at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary or at the 
lethodist Building. This will be in the best interest of all candidates by 
sliminating the travel and other expenses incurred by having to go to the 
esting center. 

'ORTH CAROLINA PASTORS SCHOOL: Each year during the Duke Convocation and 
astors School a number of opportunities are presented for the further 
jrowth and development of the ministerial alumni of Duke and other 
;eminaries, particularly those from the North Carolina and the Western 
lorth Carolina Conferences. Planning for these activities is done by a 
iJoard of Managers, composed of an equal number of ministers from each 
:onference. The following nominations are presented for membership on the 
ioard of Managers from the North Carolina Conference: 

Class of 1985 - Albert F. Fisher, William W. Sherman, Jr. 

Class of 1986 - F. Owen Fitzgerald, Jr. , Judi J. Smith 

Class of 1987 - Ernest R. Porter, H. Langi 11 Watson 

Class of 1988 - G. Robert McKenzie, Jr., Charles W. Smith 

MISCELLANEOUS: The Board of Ordained Ministry would remind the Annual 
Conference and ministerial candidates preparing for membership 

relationships to the North Carolina Conference that several actions of past 
Annual Conference sessions have established requirements that go beyond the 
basic steps found in the Book of Discipline . 

For Full Time Local Pastors, the Board recommended that ministers 
having completed the basic Five Year Course of Study continue to attend the 
Course of Study School in the Summer, enrolling in at least four years of 
Advanced Studies during any six year period. These courses, offered on a 
seminary level would increase the competency of our Full Time Local Pastors 
(1980). 

For Associate Membership, the Board recommended that the academic 
requirement be raised to the four-year baccalaureate degree (1974). 

For Full Connection, the Board recommended that only those persons who 
had completed the M. Div. degree (or its equivalent) in seminary be elected 
in Full Membership (1975). Within the M. Div. degree, the Board has 
recommended that certain specific courses be included to provide the 
ministerial candidate with competence in preaching and worship as well as a 
knowledge of our United Methodist history doctrine, and polity. The 

following specific guidelines were recommended: 

Each student must complete the following seminary level courses to be 
eligible for Full Connection and Elder's Orders (1979): 

1. A Course in preaching that includes a practicum, laboratory, or 
field experience in the preparation, delivery, and evaluation of 
sermons. 

2. A course in public worship that includes the theory and practice of 
planning and leading public worship. 

3. The course requirements contained in Par. 424.3c of the 1980 Book 
of Discipline be fulfilled by completing these three separate and 
distinct courses: 

a. United Methodist Polity. 

b. United Methodist Theology and Doctrine. 

c. A History of Methodism.

II. Ministerial pension Plan (MPP) . ^ ^ on a new 

1 iqa2 will be funded on a new 



because it builds an account of funds for a specific minister 
his/her salary is paid. 

, Funding is based on a percentage of Plan Compensation. p] 1 

Compensation is calculated as follows: 
Take Cash Income (salary plus utilities) i.e. $15,000.00 and 
Add Housing Allowance (20% of cash income) + 3,000.00 and 



Plan Compensation will be $18,000.00 

l.No travel funding is ever used in Plan Compensation calculations as th 
is considered by the General Board of Pensions to be an item of loci 
expense. ' 

2. The utility allowance of the pastor is not considered by the Gener,( 
Board of Pensions to be more than 10% of the total Cash Incom'; 
regardless of the amount set at the Charge Conference. 

3. For the 1982-1985 period, the funding formula will not include an amou 
for utilities. This means that only 90% of the Cash Income will be t"' 
base for Plan Compensation. 

4. Where a cash housing allowance is provided as a part of the compensati 
for an appointment or where the pastor chooses to live in housing othi.: 
than the parsonage provided by the charge, the Housing Allowance in tl i 
Plan Compensation calculation shall be considered 20% of the Cash Incomi|) 
regardless of the amount of the cash Housing Allowance. '[ 

C. The Ministerial Pension Plan contribution from the local church is to l'| 
paid monthly to the Conference Treasurer for transmission to the Gener<( 
Board of Pensions. 



These contributions are place in the individual minister's i 
Account to be available for benefits when the minister becomes el 
for payment in the retired relationship. The following option 

available at that time: 



Churc 

eligibl 

ai 



l.A life annuity with 100% to the surviving contingent annuitant. 
2. A life annuity with 75% to the surviving contingent annuitant. 
3. A life annuity with 50% to the surviving contingent annuitant. 
4. A single-life annuity with ten years certain. 
5. A single-life annuity with five years certain. 
6. A single-life, (no refund) annuity. 

E. Each minister who is eligible for benefits will be required to designat 
beneficiaries for the benefits he/she is qualified to receive. 

F. We recommend that the following schedule of participation in th 
Ministerial Pension Plan be adopted and implemented to bring the Nortll 
Carolina Conference participants into the intended structure of thJ 
Ministerial Pension Plan: ' 

Year Salaries and Utilities MPP Percentage 

1983 90% 9% 

1984 90% 10% 

1985 90% 10% 

1986 100%* 10%* 

1987 100% 10% 

1988 100% 11% 

1989 100% 11% 

1990 100% 12%* 

*Steps indicated/required in the Pension Plan Document. 

III. Comprehensive Protection Plan (CPP) 

A. This part of the program contains provisions for a death benefit, 
disability income, and funding for the peerage portion of the 
Ministerial Pension Plan. In addition to the provision of a death 
benefit for either the spouse or the surviving spouse of the minister, 
the comprehensive plan also includes educational benefits for the 
children of a deceased minister. This part of the new plan is only 
available to those ministers serving full time. 

1. Death benefits provide 150% of the Denominational Average Salary as 
the benefit paid on the death of an active minister through age 46, 

309 



dropping on a graduated basis to 105% at age 55, 70% at age 62, and 
20% upon retirement at any age. . .»^=.„^ 

2 Disability payments are based on 40% of the Denominational Average 
salary in effect at the time the minister is placed on disability. 

3 The peerage program provides for a contribution from the 
'comprehensive Protection Plan to the minister's Church Account of a 

sufficient amount to provide the minister with a total contribution 
for the year based on the Denominational Average Compensation. This 
would provide every minister in the North Carolina Conference under 
appointment to a full-time charge (Conference M«'"5«'^-^^"^. ^°?^i 
Pastor) with an annual Church Account accumulation of 9% of Plan 
Compensation based on the Denominational Average Compensation. 

B The cost of the Comprehensive Protection Plan is a 4.1% contribution 
of actual Plan Compensation. The minister will be 5?^"^|?J„*^° P^^ tie 
of the 4.1% as provided in the Comprehensive Protection Plan, and the 
church or charge will pay the additional 3.1%. 

, Minister's Personal Account 

A.The pension program provides that a minister «*»° P"^icipates in the 
Ministerial Pension Plan shall contribute 3% of actual Plan 
Compensation annually to his/her Personal Account. 

B These funds would be available in a lump sum or in a variety of other 
Ipt ions when the minister reaches age 60, or may be left to accumulate 
as an additional amount for monthly pension benefits. 

C.The minister's personal account contributions can be made in one of 
three ways: 




of contribution. 



2. A personal tax-deductible contribution. This option allows the 

minister to send the monthly contribution from funds received from 
?h2chlrge treasurer. The General Board of Pensions P![""»«^^^this 
type of Contribution to be the minister's preference "^^f ^^'J^V "^ 
notified otherwise. This type of contribution can be deducted from 
the minister's income for income tax purposes on the line for 

Individual Retirement Account (IRA) contributions. 




intere?? earned bj ^uch contributions is, however, taxable. 
Implementation of the Program 




compensation is below the Denominational Average Salary

B. Costs of the Ministerial Pension Plan/Comprehensive Protection Plahio 
will be borne by the local charge as an item of ministerial supporll 
according to the Plan Compensation of the minister and the categorjll 
of the charge. 

Full Time (Conference Member/Local Pastor) — 13% of Plan Compensation. 
Student (Conference Member/Local Pastor) — 10% of Plan Compensation. 
Less than Full Time (Conference Member/Local Pastor) — 10% of sala-y. 
Interim or Retired Supply — no pension responsibility. 

C. Monthly payments from the local charge for the Ministerial Pensior 
Plan and Comprehensive Protection Plan MUST be paid to the Conference 
Treasurer monthly so the Conference Treasurer can make his monthly 
payment to the General Board of Pensions as required by the Plan. 
Failure of the local charge to make these monthly payments will 
jeapordize their minister's participation in the Plan and diminish 
his/her future benefits. 

D. The minister will make regular payments to the Conference Treasurer 
for his/her portion (1%) of the Comprehensive Protection Plan. 



E. The minister will make regular payments to 
Pensions for his/her Personal Account (3%). 



the General Board of 



VI. Summary 

It is obvious that there has been a great improvement in the benefits 
currently being received by our retired families. The per service year! 
rate has increased from $82.00 per service year in 1978 to the present 
$164.00 yearly rate for 1984. A minister retiring this year with forty 
years of pension credit will receive a monthly benefit of $547.66, compared 
with $273.33 in 1978. The increase to the $180.00 on July 1 will bring the 
monthly benefit for that same minister to $600.00. This is a 100% increase' 
in a seven year period! 

Our constant aim is to provide our retired families with their needs 
for an adequate income to purchase essentials for living as well as to 
insure adequate care in case of illness. To these ends our recommendations 
are directed, and their satisfaction is found in the acceptance of the 
North Carolina Conference and its membership.

REPORT E. SEVERANCE PAY RECOMMENDATIONS 

(This report was re-committed to the Board of Pensions for further 

study ^rnd%e;?rt back to the ^I'^llllll^Ts^^T^lUe that comes to few 

The call to be an o-^^ained min ster is a pr y Minister is to 

nSjre,rep^toral^:L;on^tbtnr^;£or.nities in ministry ^a^^^ 
irniltrr U-^hr/ntrea-ethoat^rc-LrrU-s possible a .ind of security 



available to few other professions. Among the benefits provided by t\ 
North Carolina Conference in our tenure system are a guaranteed appointmei 
which will pay at least the minimum salary, a parsonage that is most] 
furnished, participation in a pension program upon retirement that is pai ' 
by the charge, medical and term life insurance, and the opportunity t' 
participate in the Conference Brotherhood and the Minister's Retiremeri! 
Fund. 

The benefits of the North Carolina Conference should not be regarded 
as an inducement to attract into our ministry who may not be able to uphol 
the high standards and ideals of the Christian ministry that we cherish 
Neither do we intend these benefits to cause a person to continue i 
ministry even though he/she desires to use hisAier talents and energies i 
another vocation. 



We recognize that from time to time there are those who do desire t,(j|j 
separate themselves from membership in our Conference and do other work!" 
This separation does not cause any loss of the pension benefits that havi! 
already accrued to that individual. Severance Pay is understood as i 
transitional fund. Also opportunity is provided for the minister ti 
convert his/her present insurance program to private policies withoutS 
incurring waiting periods for benefits. ; 

The Board of Pensions makes the following recommendations: ii 

1. Severance pay is a fund paid to a minister who is no longer eligible t<i 
be appointed either by action of the Cabinet or the Board of Ordainecj 
Ministry and approved at the Executive Session of the Annual Conference,! 
Those persons who initiate the action to sever their active appointivej 
relationship would not be eligible for this fund or those ministers whc 
are recommended to have their conference relationships terminatecl 
because the minister has failed to uphold the United Methodist Church's! 
standards for ministry. «'• 



2. Severance pay is understood as a transitional fund for those no longer 
eligible for appointment; therefore, severance payments are to be made| 
only one time in any minister's career in this conference. | 

I 

3. Severance pay benefits shall be based on the years of approved pension| 
credit in the North Carolina Conference only. Payment shall be made onj 
the basis of two-thirds the per service year rate, multiplied by the 
years of approved pension credit in the North Carolina Conference 
provided that the person is not eligible for retirement benefits 
immediately. The total amount of this severance pay shall be divided 
into six equal monthly payments. 

4. We recommend that a Severance Payment Fund be established and be 
administered by the Cabinet and the Executive Committee of the Board of' 
Ordained Ministry. This fund is not to involve any monies appropriated 
for pension benefits or funds administered by the Board of Pensions. 

5. Should an unusual or exceptional situation occur, whereby it seems to be 
in the best interest of either the charge or the minister, that the 
minister's appointment should be terminated, the Bishop and the Cabinet, 
meeting with the Executive Committee of the Board of Ordained Ministry 
shall determine the appropriate amount of the severance payment, with 
the fund being provided from the source that seems most feasible.

RESOLUTION 

The rules and regulations governing pension matters are specific anc 
exact. It is absolutely imperative that these rules be followed to the 
letter of the law, lest members of the Board of Pensions and eventually; 
members of the Annual Conference be swayed by emotional appeals or some 
other bias which could hamper our decisions from being impartial and fair., 
In the time I have been a member of the Conference Board of Pensions, the 
rules have been administered as fairly and as impartially, and as ^ 
unemotionally, as we have known how to enforce those rules. These rulesi ; 
represent the Law of the Church and they are there to prevent chaos, and to_ j 
five equal treatment to all. ''' 

At the same time, the Board of Pensions has tried to be very sensitive*P 
to human need. And whenever the rules permit, to make an appropriate'!'' 
response to those needs. This attitude represents Christian Grace, and mayS*" 
it never be lost; neither let that grace be abused or exploited. i 

The case of Charles I. Umstead has been a delicate, and oftentimes'*^ 
painful struggle between law and grace. The Board of Pensions knows fullU' 
well what the law of the Church says concerning Mr. Umstead, and it knows'^ 
how to implement that law. Grace may not always be so clearly defined. 

However, your Board of Pensions will make another effort to uphold the 
laws of the Pension Code of the United Methodist Church, and at the same 
time evidence the qualities of grace and mercy. , 

To these ends we present the follopwing recommendations: f' 

Beginning June of 1984, Charles I. Umstead, Jr., be given a special!! 
grant, equal to one-third of the North Carolina Conference Average Salary, < 
plus paying the premiums on health and life insurance programs, sponsored) 
by the North Carolina Annual Conference. Further, that this resolution, if 
adopted, remain in effect until your Board of Pensions presents alternative 
action to the Annual Conference." 

For the conferences information, this resolution makes it possible for 
Mr. Umstead to receive the most generous financial support our rules 
permit. 



JOINT COMMITTEE ON DISABILITY 

The Joint Committee on Disability acts as the advocate of those 
ministers in the North Carolina Conference who are forced by physical or 
emotional disability to seek temporary or permanent relief from their 
appointment. The committee is given the responsibility to study th« 
problems of disability within the Conference, to provide a continuing 
personal ministry to those who are disabled, and to make recommendations to 
the appropriate agencies of the Conference for each minister seeking 
Disability Leave, including the source of their disability income. 

The following recommendations are presented to the 1984 session of the 
north Carolina Conference: 

1. The Joint Committee on Disability will make available upon request 
the necessary forms for any minister to make application for Disability 
Leave. In all cases the applications must be completed by the minister, the 
physician, and the district superintendent before the request for 
Disability Leave can be acted upon. It is the recommendation of the Joint 
Committee on Disability that such requests be presented before May 15 for 
inclusion in the committee's report to the Annual Conference. 

2. The Joint Committee on Disability may require physiological 
examinations when deemed necessary by the committee. These will be done by 
a physician approved by the committee, and in such a case the committee may 
share the expense of the examination in an amount not to exceed $100. 00. d 
Book of Reports, Section III, p. 6 (see additions to report). 

3. The Joint Committee on Disability will study each application for 
Disability Leave submitted by ministers of the Conference to determine the 
recommendation of the minister's physician and district superintendent, 
particularly as it reflects the anticipated length of the minister's 
disability. The medical reports will be sent to the medical consultant of 
the General Board of Pensions for an interpretation of the minister's 
disabling conditions. The General Board's medical consultant will determine 
if the minister is eligible for benefits paid through the Comprehensive 
Protection plan. From July, 1981 to December, 1981, disability benefits 
were paid through new coverage under the Disability and Survivor Benefit 
Fund of the General Board of Pensions as adopted by the 1981 Session of the 
Annual Conference. Beginning on January 1, 1982, disability benefits from 
the General Board of Pensions were transferred to coverage under the new 

329 



^oJrehensive Protection Plan. 

4. We recommend that ministers who may not be eligible for benefits 
jad by the Comprehensive Protection may be placed on Disability Leave with 
tjesfits paid through the Emergency Relief Fund. The Joint Committee on 
liability in reviewing the minister's application may determine that a 
ghrt-term leave with benefits equal to (or less than) those provided by 
th Comprehensive Protection Plan. This could include a monthly benefit 
oaed on 40% of the Denominational Average Salary and the cost of the 
njister's coverage under the Conference insurance program of 
Kpitalizat ion and life insurance. 

5. We recommend that an interim monthly grant of $250.00 will be made 
f< the first five months a minister is granted Disability Leave with 
o«,efits paid through the Comprehensive Protection Plan. This grant would 
OC'terminated during the five months period if the minister began to 
rteive Social Security benefits. 

6. The Joint Committee on Disability will review the progress of each 
aiiister on Disability Leave at least annually. This review will include 
b<h recommendations from the minister's physician and district 
si^erintendent as well as opportunities for continuing fellowship with the 
m.ister to develop further possibilities of assistance in hisA>er disabled 
c, cumstances. Those receiving aid from the Emergency Relief Fund will be 
fu'lewed at the end of their first six months of Disability Leave. 

7. We recommend that the expenses of travel, telephone, postage, and 
oier materials for the committee be paid from the Emergency Relief Fund. 

8. We recommend the following ministers to be placed on Disability 
Live for the first time: 

A. Clingman Carter Capps 

B. Frederick F. Dillon (AM) 

C. William H. Farmer 

9. We recommend the following ministers to be continued on Disability 
Lave: 

A. Paul Wesley Evans (AM) 

B. Robert Norman Knight 

C. Robert Fulton McKee 

D. Evander Parnell (AM) 

E. Henry Robert Warren 

F. Luther Vernon Wesley (AM) 

G. John Everett Wood 

10. We recommend that ministers and congregations in the communities in 
ich our disabled ministers reside seek to establish a supportive 
lationship with those on Disability Leave to maintain good fellowship and 
ovide for pastoral opportunities. It is further recommended that housing 
eds and other spoecial problems of our disabled ministers be considered 
these congregations and communities in the light of the contribution 
de to our United Methodist Church by those on disability during their 
ars of service. We can all become better stewards of the gift of life and 
ill as we share in this ministry of caring and concern. 

F. Owen Fitzgerald, Chairperson 



CONFERENCE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

The Board of Trustees of the Conference has the responsibility for 
aintenance and upkeep of the Methodist Building in Raleigh, 7 staff 
srsonages, and the episcopal residence for the Bishop. 

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to report that we made our last 
ayment on the Methodist Building in March of this year. The only 
jmaining debt of the Trustees is $973.56 which is owed on the Episcopal; 
ssidence, and that will be paid this year. I wish to commend those 
"thodists in this Annual Conference who had the wisdom and foresight to 
iild the Methodist Building. It has been a wise investment and stands as 
tribute to the stewardship of resources which has been exercised by this 
mual Conference. A special event will be held in the Methodist Building 
ithin the next few months to celebrate the retirement of the debt. 



The report for the Methodist Building Operating Fund is as follows:

The Board has reviewed all property and casuality insurance and is i 
the process of consolidating the coverage. This consolidation will result 
in a substantial savings in premiums and will allow more efficien 
administration of the insurance policy. 

You will note that there is no longer a line item in the Conferenc 
budget for Methodist Building expense. The Board anticipates that we wil 
be operate the building with the revenues which are being generated froi 
the rents. 

We wish to commend Mr. Clifton Everette for his dedicated service a: 
Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Many of the decisions which must b( 
made by the Trustees required legal expertise and he has proved to be af 
outstanding leader and valuable servant of the Conference. 

Bishop Cannon, I move the adoption of this report.

BOARD OF LAITY 

The Board of Laity sponsors programs that equip lay persons for theii 
unique responsibility in carrying out a mission of the Christian Gospel. 

District lay rallies were held in each of the 12 districts with ar 
attendance of over 10,000. This is a record. The New Bern District 
established another record by having 1,500 persons in attendance. Th« 
rallies centered on the Bicentennial emphasis with banners, skits anc 
speeches carrying out the theme. Each district selected a Lay Person of the 
year, emphasized scholarships and recognized outstanding students. Unitec 
Methodist Women, United Methodist Men and United Methodist Youth plannec 
and participated in the rallies. 

January Workshops were held in each of the 12 districts, and in spit« 
of severe weather conditions, 3 ,994 (another record attendance) and tooK 
advantage of the training sessions. The increased attendance is evidence of 
the need for this program and the desire for increased skills in leadei 
development. 

Lay Speaker Training remains a priority of the Board of the Laity. 
Most of the training this year was done in the districts where basic anc 
advanced courses were offered. The program is designed to increase th< 
knowledge and skill of the lay leadership in our churches and to train mor€ 
lay persons to assume responsibility for the promotion of the outreach 
ministry of the church. A part of this report is a proposed revision of th« 
Conference Lay Speaker Program. 

United Methodist Men received a special emphasis this year. A handbook 

331 



use in local fellowships was prepared. A United Methodist Men's Rally 
/a held and 14 new fellowships were formed in local churches. We now have 
;5 chartered fellowships in the North Carolina Conference. This is another 

e^rd. United Methodist Women, and United Methodist Youth continue to be 

icive and involved in the mission of the church through the promotion of 
raious programs. 

Each year the Board of the Laity recognizes a Lay Person of the Year. 
.it Mary Whanger was recognized at Annual Conference. Former recipients of 
Is honor are: 

1964 - J. Nelson Gibson 1974 - James T. Patrick 

1965 - Terry Sanford 1975 - James Watkins 

1966 - W. Jasper Smith 1976 - Julia Williams
